Our latest Featured Artist, Kim White, comes from across the pond and brings along with her some fantastic designs from her book Doodles From The Den. We hope you enjoy her designs as much as we do.

Coloring and drawing were two of Kim’s favorite childhood pastimes, but her real interest in the adult coloring trend piqued when she realized the amazing mental health benefits it had. Not only does coloring help manage symptoms of anxiety and stress, but it’s also extremely fun and can be enjoyed by all ages!
