Welcome to my brand spanking new website where lighthearted design enthusiasts can convene for fun times!
In my blog, you will find musings that range from chocolatey goodness to Chris Hadfield.
But first, let’s begin with the genesis for lecolouring.com in this inaugural post…
Ever since I can remember, I always drew – on paper, coffee tables and those large white canvases my parents called ‘walls’. I started with a mustard yellow HB pencil and eventually graduated to pastels, markers, watercolours, acrylic and oil paint. My practice with mixed media came to a grinding halt in grade one when I taped a cute dead mouse onto my rudimentary collage. (yes, it was already dead when I found it and no, my teacher’s hysterics did not dampen my inner creative spirit)
Well, one thing led to another and I naturally wound up in marketing?! With a degree in fashion design and an MBA in brand management, I devoted most of my career to building other brands. Until one fine day last winter, when I finally gave in to my inner voice…
Lecolouring.com is more than a website. For me, it has been a life-changing, ‘cliff jumping’ adventure. Not only did I have to teach myself to draw with a tablet and learn a bit of code (oh dear), I set up shop in our dining room and subjected my lovely family to minimalist gastronomy this past year, if you know what I mean. All this to say that this venture has been incredibly humbling and positively enriching! My only hope is that you enjoy browsing, sharing and colouring my designs as much as I love creating them for you.
WARNING: I can’t help but write the way I speak. Expect run-on sentences and an over-abundance of exclamation marks and interrobangs in my blog. (‘?!’ in case you were wondering)
