Something a lot of our colorists have in common is that they use coloring as a way to recover from their busy schedule. The wonderful thing about art is the powerful strength of healing it has! Most people don’t know that coloring can alleviate stress and also increase mental clarity. If there’s something we all know, it’s that life gets stressful! When life gains full momentum, it’s almost impossible to unwind. When you are sitting down to color, whether it is focusing on an intricate mandala or getting lost in one of our mythical creatures pages, you are taking the time to hit the pause button on life and giving yourself the time you deserve to relax.
Our January Fan of the Month, Cynamin Owens, knows just how stressful life can get. Being a mother of two, we can only imagine how busy her schedule gets, but Cynamin puts aside time to create beautiful works of art as a way for her to decompress. Below we have the full interview where Cynamin talks about her passion for coloring and gives advice to colorists just like you! Also, keep reading to see our runner-up fans and what they won!
I first picked up a coloring book when I was about 5 and have had a book or coloring book in my hand pretty much since.
My perfect coloring atmosphere would have to be outside on a nice fall day.
I figure out my color palette by looking on the internet for similar pictures and then put aside all my colors used for that particular page until i get done.
Coloring has definitely made my life less stressful. I have a small baby and a 3 year old. Its very nice to sit down and decompress at the end of the day.
There is always room to improve even if you are the best artist in the world, and that no one has to be satisfied with their work but them.
I would definitely like to see a horse book.
I think everyone should try coloring at least once because it is such a stress reliever.
We definitely agree, Cynamin! Everyone owes it to themselves to hit that pause button and try coloring. You may be surprised with how it could improve your life! Congratulations to Cynamin, who was the winner of our $100 gift card.
