While I find it wonderful that there are so many coloring books that adults can enjoy, there do seem to be a large number of designs in with similarities in styles. Finding books that stand out with a unique style is always refreshing. When you see Miryam Adatto’s art, it seems to flow across the page, with lines and shapes that have an organic and ethereal quality. There is no mistaking her unique style, and her coloring books were some of the first to make it onto my wish list.
Nature inspires me. When I draw, my hand flows, dances, and enjoys peace.
