Holy Women Icons began as a painting project, giving traditional iconography a folk feminist twist. Across the vast pantheon of a virtually all-male sainthood, I noticed something was missing: women. Where were all the holy women across spiritual traditions?
I’ve painted over 50 Holy Women Icons and recount their stories in my 2014 book, Holy Women Icons.
Now is your chance to join me in the creative process. Color your way toward holiness! As you color, allow each dot to be a meditation, prayer, or mantra. Perhaps you may choose a virtue—such as peace or love—to focus on with each coloring page, or perhaps you could allow the woman you are coloring to inspire a virtue within you. However you choose to color, may your creative time with this contemplative coloring book enliven, inspire, embolden, sooth, and calm you.
A brief description of each holy woman, along with a small image of her painting, is found at the back of the coloring book for you to use as a reference if you wish.
May these holy women inspire and empower you.
May coloring their images embolden you.
May you discover something new about spirituality, history, and yourself.
