It’s here! 8 pages of my original hand drawn illustrations….all bound together in a coloring book.

I was so inspired by the Color for Clarity project I kept drawing until I had enough to publish my own coloring book.
Color Quest • Volume 1 (featuring the art of Rachel Urista) is a collection of my own illustrations, mainly animal and nature inspired.

You’ll  love the fun and imaginative Pacific Northwest inspired drawings. With each illustration, I constructed a whole world for you to jump into and explore while you color.

Oh, the best part (in my opinion!) is the nice and thick paper that works great with watercolors and ink! It will hold colored pencil and crayons too.

You can also order it directly from me.  I’ll have a limited number of copies on hand available for purchase at my studio studio, starting next Wednesday.

I am so inspired by our collaborative effort, what you can do to make dreams come true. For about a year now I’ve been wanting to create a coloring book, so when I was asked to collaborate with 5 other super talented women, I jumped on board.

What resulted is even more beautiful and inspiring that I had imagined. Check out some images below of the inside pages.

I LOVE these intricate lines and shapes, don’t you? One of the unique aspects of this particular coloring book are its use of merging words into the pages. The intent of this was so that we can meditate on positive words and provocative questions as we color and find ourselves in a calmer, more introspective place.  Read more about this here.
