Coloring Tips:

Use your favorite art supplies and get ready for a coloring journey. Add your own touch of color and artistic expression. This unique book provides endless hours of peaceful personal serenity, so there is no need to rush or finish the book in a set time.

1) Illustrations of fabric, foliage, and patterns can be colored with either one color or a variety of colors. Remember, many Japanese patterns are embossed or etched into the fabric with one color, while other fabrics have many colored details. Don’t let the details scare you. It is not necessary to color every section that is drawn.

2) Many designs are intricate with fine details. This detail brings variety, which is traditional in Japanese culture items. It is not necessary to color all the fine details. Color what you want. In the bottom corner, a Japanese “Hanko” signature is stamped and is usually one color, such as red or gold. You don’t have to be concerned about the fine detail of this stamp.

After traveling to Japan to experience the country of my heritage. I was so inspired by its beauty, culture, and people that I had to illustrate the "Essence" into a coloring book. The illustrations all represent real destinations in central Japan. More volumes to come for your enjoyment.

I'm a wife, mom, and artist living in Southern California. Art has always been part of my life. With a BFA in Illustration, I decided to branch out and share my talents.
