Color Me Calm, Color Me Happy and blowing my own trumpet!

I’m not good at blowing my own trumpet, but as the cat is out of the bag it’s time for me to say how chuffed I am to have been approached by Jeannine Dillon, editor for Race Point publishers, to do the artwork/illustrations for two books full of colouring templates with text written by Lacy Mucklow and the design put together by Jacqui Carlton.

The first book, Color Me Calm, is due for release in October this year.

 The second book is titled Color Me Happy and is also due for release around the same time.

The titles say it all!


I’ve also been working with Bev Robinson of Love Thy Thread and she’s converted some of my artwork into cross-stitch charts available exclusively from this website, just follow the link to me, Angela Porter.

Another piece of news is that I’ll have a third book of artwork coming out early next year with Dover Publishing, Jason Schneider is the editor there.  More news as things get done there.

And with that, I must get back to doing the coloured illustrations for Color Me Calm.  Such good therapy for me while I’m recovering from a long-term illness of my own.

    Hi, I’m buying these today from chapters and I can’t wait to get them. I’m just wondering which mediums I can use for colouring. Will art pens work or will they run through the paper. . .Pens?

      Hi Danielle. I’d recommend coloured pencils for the books. I haven’t tried art pens or markers on the sheets in the books, though they are printed only on one side so you could use them with something under the page to protect the other pages from bleeding through. I hope that helps,
