What has brought you to this work?

As an illustrator by trade, I have always been fascinated by design and colour, whether designing fashions or creating ads and doing the artwork for SEARS, illustrating childrens' books, brochures, magazine & newspaper illustrations, hand-made greeting cards and artwork for the Lincoln County School Board for teachers to teach novel studies ..also airbrushing wall murals, school mascots for local schools, stained glass articles, hand-tinted pen & ink greeting cards, home portraits, brochures, logos and more.

Years ago, while working with Feir Johnson, Dr of Hypnotherapy, and doing artwork for her series of books and cds for children with ADHD, eating disorders, fears and self esteem issues, I was introduced to the mandala, often used by teachers to calm children. I found that even CREATING a mandala was soothing and grounding.

Naturally, I experimented on my own & created mandalas with more & more detail, thus leading to an even deeper sense of de-stress. Add colour and I was then fascinated by the results. I was then compelled to work further to find what would bring healing to others through my artwork.

As a Certified LifePath Coach, I used my knowledge & my artistic skills combined to develop a series of De-STRESSING MANDALAs. Each one was created specifically to help someone in need and sent them to anyone asking for a mandala to colour.

As thus, COLOUR ME HAPPY-DeSTRESSING WITH MANDALAS was born.

After considerable urging by others, I then created a series of COLOUR ME HAPPY- "HEALING ENERGY MANDALA" Colouring Books.


What services do you offer and how do they assist others?

My COLOUR ME HAPPY- "HEALING ENERGY MANDALA" Colouring Books offer DeStressing and Emotional Healing. Each book covers one topic..all original artwork. There are more than "just a colouring books" ...each mandala is designed after 45 minutes of meditation on the chosen positive affirmation first, from which the energy is infused into the resulting artwork. Available HERE

The following titles are available at this point with more being released monthly:

Soon to be released:"EMOTIONAL HEALING" & "FORGIVENESS" Besides publishing my Colouring Books, I also offer Interactive COLOURING WORKSHOPS & explain how vocal positive affirmations combined with colouring in a specific manner, works to create a new mindset and begin a new path of healing and recovery, both emotionally & physically. Another Workshop, WHOSE LIFE ARE YOU LIVING?, helps us examine following our dreams, has shown to be very enlightening and satisfying.


What philosophy do you live by?

I firmly believe that we are all here for a reason...that challenges are opportunities to learn. Kindness and humour are vital, compassion and insight are very important. I believe that we are all part of an energy from which we originate and to which we return, which means we are all connected, regardless of colour, race, gender or religion.

Testimonials

"I love my colouring book. I find I lose track of time when I start a page. I zone right out and sometimes I need that. Although it gave me a great idea for an afghan it also made me relax enough that I was able to fall asleep. So yes, it did relax me and gave me a new angle on a creation."
- Laura Higgins

"I have done a few of the pages already. I know these will make excellent gifts for friends who also need to relax. It is the avenue of refocusing from a busy hectic life, to be able to concentrate on the smaller things, and make the world more beautiful and colourful along the way. We all need "down time", it is important for our inner self. Well done Nancy. I will be a repeat customer."
- Kathy Reid
