  • Overview

    Forget about a world where colouring books are for kids. Times have changed. Whether at home or at work, our busy lives are dominated by computer screens, stress and overflowing calendars. We seem to have lost the ability to relax and engage. Enter the adult colouring book, where the meditative and mindful act of staying inside the lines allows us to slip into a rhythmic, relaxed state-of-mind. Whether undertaken as a solo enterprise, or shared with family, the new world of colouring for grown-ups will feed the needs of the budding artist and dissolve the stress of your worst day.

    Artist Bobbi Pike is renowned for her vivid and symbolic art pieces. She pours her creativity onto paper and canvas, creating an homage to ‘The Rock’ in every work. In The Colours of Newfoundland and Labrador, Pike has altered her famous style to allow her audience to re-imagine the colours of this artful province. With her black-and-white sketches, she invites us into the coves, communities and small moments of daily Newfoundland life, allowing us to interpret her beautiful images using all the colours of the rainbow. Pike’s original pieces are in demand around the world. But in The Colours of Newfoundland and Labrador, she brings the inner artist in all of us “home,” to enjoy the vibrant, limitless creativity of this magical region.
