I’ve been drawing my whole life. As a child, art was my favorite subject at school. I was a smart kid and top of my class, so my teachers were terribly disappointed in me when I quit high school math to take on more art subjects.
When I finished school, I started a little graphic design business where I designed logos, websites and flyers for friends. I moved away from pen and paper and fully embraced technology. I took on a full-time job a few years later and volunteered many hours at my local church, so my graphic design became a bit of a side-hobby and I stopped drawing completely.
Skip ahead to 2015, I was married and had just given birth to my beautiful boy, Zac (more about that later). I went on maternity leave from my full-time job, and never went back. Instead, I was determined to build my own business from home doing something creative.
Coloring books weren’t my first creative venture. I actually started making an iPhone game that I was super proud of, but that totally flopped. And I tried making t-shirts, which never made it to print.
And then one day, I heard about adult coloring books.
