About Us

We’re coloring book authors and artists. We create coloring books, mostly coloring books for adults. (Some of us resist the expression “grown ups,” and we refuse to grow up.)

This new website is about our coloring books — how we create them, how we color them, and how our friends and fans can get the most from our books.

We also share personal insights, free coloring book page downloads, and news about our current projects (with the occasional sneak peek at our newest coloring pages).

Our authors (so far)

Aisling D’Art – Best known for her quirky website (Aisling.net) filled with how-to tips for mixed media artists and her creative artists’ journals, Aisling has taught at events including Art & Soul, Art Unraveled, Artfest, Celebrate Art, and DragonCon.

So far, she has published over a dozen coloring books, including her popular “Bold and Easy Coloring Pages” series. (New books in that series include designs by other Coloring Group authors.)
