I want you to meet my friend, Elizabeth. We met a few years ago when our boys were doing Cubs Scouts together. We clicked because we don’t dig small talk and we have similar tastes in doodling! I have watched her grow as an artist over the last few years, and I’m in awe of her creativity. I asked her if she would draw our community an adult coloring page. So, get a cup of tea or coffee. Find colored pencils, pens, crayons… whatever works for you. Print out one of these and enjoy! –Mary
Elizabeth, how did you start doodling?
I started doodling during the summer of 2015 with my kids. We were having so much fun creating without a care of negative critique. I happened to post one of my creations on Facebook, just to celebrate the day of fun I had with my kids. The next day I was blown away by the flurry of compliments – my picture received many “likes” and positive comments. For better or for worse, I respond to positive feedback. I started creating more and had friends and family request I make cards for them. I have not turned this into a business – rather, I enjoy the relief from stress I get when I lose myself in a world of ink pens and paper. I do keep posting my work as others have said it brings them joy. To see if it will bring a smile to your face, feel free to check out more of my work on Facebook.
Elizabeth Heeg lives in Iowa with her two kids a dog and cat. As an associate professor of biology, her job by day is to teach and advise students who dream of medical school. Doodling is a great outlet to relax and focus on positive messages.
