Description

Emma FitzGerald's 2015 book Hand Drawn Halifax was an immediate hit in Halifax. Emma's appealing sketches of the city's neighbourhoods and her obvious appreciation of the diversity of the city in her notes on her experiences as she drew won her many fans. At events and signings, Emma offered printouts of line drawing versions of a few of the book's illustrations, which were eagerly accepted.

Out of that experience comes this book -- a collection of 80 line drawings for colouring book fans, including brand new drawings. There's an opportunity for everyone to produce their own versions of Emma's portraits of Halifax's buildings, places and people. Printed on thick paper selected to prevent bleedthrough, the 80+ illustrations vary in intricacy, giving options to colour-inners of all ages!

About the Author

Emma FitzGerald

EMMA FITZGERALD was born in Lesotho, a small mountainous kingdom in Southern Africa. Her early travels have given her a large appetite for adventure. Combining her interest in people and places, Emma followed a career path that was part architecture, part art. She received her BFA in Visual Art at the University of British Columbia, spending her third year at L?Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris, where she honed her drawing skills. She then completed her undergraduate and master's degrees in Architecture at Dalhousie University in Halifax. She has worked in architecture offices in Johannesburg, South Africa, and across Canada.

While working in Gambia, Emma took students onto the streets of their own communities, using sketching as their primary learning tool. When she returned to Halifax, drawing became an act of connecting with the many stories and unofficial histories of the area, a custom during her travels, but never before in Halifax. This laid the groundwork for her new book.
