As a young girl, Nicole was enchanted by a black and white photograph hanging in her parents summer cabin, wishing she could bring it to life with color. An artist at heart, Nicole imagined a collection of coloring books filled with inspiring, carefully curated photographs. The first in a series, Beautiful Creatures marks her publishing debut. A mother of two young children, Nicole treasures any moment to lose herself in color and creation in her Vancouver home.
"Coloring a grayscale image is like creating magic and turning a page into a colorful reality. At first I thought it was very complex but the moment I started coloring, I just couldn't stop. The gray tones served as a guide for my instinct and artistry to decide what color to apply. It also liberated me to create an alternate reality of an image. It was very relaxing, extremely fun and it sharpened my coloring skills. I absolutely enjoyed how my imagination and reality merged in the final colored image." - Joanna Lynn Flores, Artist
