Christina has graciously answered some questions for me about her work. Welcome, Christina.

Why do you think adult coloring books have gotten so popular?

I think that it's because it's a very relaxing thing to do. 

Do you have a favorite design you've created?

I have many favorites. I think Madeline Sheehan's Undeniable illustration in the coloring book is my favorite because it's the most complex. I'm very excited to color it :) 
What do you do for relaxation and stress relief?

Relaxation and stress relief comes to me by drawing. Any time I'm on the phone, I've most likely got a pen in my hand and drawing something. 

Do you have a current project you're working on?

I'm currently working on book artwork, and brainstorming new coloring book ideas :)

As adult coloring books become more and more popular it’s only natural that themes are being featured. With stunning illustrations, it’s only logical that romance would be involved.

Author/illustrator Christina Collie has created gorgeous drawings of various items associated with love such as flowers, birds, jewels, butterflies, and so much more. The illustrations are vivid.

The book is designed beautifully with a heavy paper perfect for coloring. The hidden images and quotes throughout the book add to the enjoyment of coloring.

Don’t be surprised if the ‘doodles’ in this book cause you to try your hand at it too. You will recognize various romance books featured through these illustrations.

An exquisite coloring book that will make a perfect gift for anyone, especially a book lover.
