The artist has been sketching, coloring, drawing in sketchbooks since age five. After completing 14 coloring books over the last two years, she was looking for another topic to draw lovely images for her next effort. Hence, the 50+ images coloring book – just for BIG KIDS at heart. These designs were created from the artist’s hand-drawn original inspired sketches resulting in graphically complimentary black and white spaces with loads of potential for adding color.
Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple doodles or complicated illustrations and inspired art that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations.
Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The pages of delightful and imaginative illustrations of fairy abodes allows you to relax while you wile away the hours or the day and find peace in your own mind.
How can BIG KIDS (regardless of chronological age) use this coloring book? Whether the co-artist uses crayon, marker, or colored pencil, or paints – or a combination – the beautiful results can be used to pass the time, keep your mind still, go into your own personal Zen moment, use your hands in a creative way, or to use for a craft or art project. Once the designs are colored – give the books as gifts, use pages as scrapbook background art, or cut out the designs and use in multi-media art. The possibilities are endless!

Dawn D. Boyer, Ph.D. has been drawing since she was five years old, and would color her father’s office stationery with crayons to create colored paper for art projects. She received her first acrylic paint set in 1973 (a $25.00 kit was a lot of money back then!) and promptly drove her art teacher crazy finishing class projects in hours versus days.
She attended Virginia Commonwealth University's, Bachelor of Art Program, and then re-engaged later at Radford University, earning her BFA in Graphic Design and Illustration. She returned to Virginia Commonwealth University to earn her Masters Degree in Adult Education, and then attended Old Dominion University for her Doctorate of Philosophy in Education (STEMPS/OTS/T&D/HR).
Over the years she has developed a distinctive style for her pen and ink illustrations of old barns and houses, as well as Colonial Williamsburg architectural portraiture. She currently works in mixed-media from recycled magazines to create 3-D images of stylistic animals and mandalas, using childhood craft processes (bubble-gum chains, paper footballs, and quilling techniques) to create sophisticated paper baskets ‘crocheted’ woven together in a non-traditional way. This is used to her advantage in creating imaginative illustrations of the delightful fairy houses and fairy doors.
She is the author of 94+ books on the topics of business, career search practices, mandala books for hypnotherapy and meditation, coloring books for adults, women and gender studies, and quotes for self-improvement (“2,000+” & “3,000+” series), as well as genealogy and family lineage. She assists other authors publish their manuscripts in the print-on-demand market and also has a series of books entitled: Interview with An Artist. The interview books compile artists’ interviews with photos of the artist’s work to assist the artists in marketing and branding their work to an international marketplace.
She completed her doctor of philosophy studies May 2013 at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, VA in Education (Occupational & Technical Studies, with a concentration in Training & Development in Human Resources).
