I am overwhelmed by the feedback I receive everyday! The healing power of colouring in, the stress relief, the absolute pleasure it gives not only inspire me beyond words but also make me want to sketch more and more.
For me it all started with colouring with line and whatever it brings on a blank piece of paper. I have been drawing since the age of 5 and it has healed and carried me through difficult times. My husband died in my arms, my mom committed suicide and was a manic depressive, post-natal depression was unexpected but very evident in changing my whole life ñ through all of the above my art carried me.
The colouring book developed from an A4 book covered with potato bags, I simply could not find decent brown paper, to the two books Kom, kleur in! (Naledi 2013) and Kom, kleur saam in! (Naledi 2014). An English colouring book will be available by the end of May 2015.
I am inspired by everyday life, by the people I meet and the pleasures and pains life gives me. I am also inspired by the beauty of the unexpected and moments in time that come to mind when I least expect it.
Please feel free to contact me, I would love to see what you do with colour. There will be a new My e-Colouring Book every month and as we go along you will be part of my art that keeps evolving, and the influence of lifeís experience on my art.
