The Lovereading4Kids comment

Zen doodlers come in many different guises; some hide their passion for zen doodling under a bushel whilst others are happy to tell the world. But, if you're new to this ever more popular activity (it's not a craze as we know people who have been zen doodling for a while now), then why not surprise yourself with how vibrant and exciting the results can be. You need nothing more than a pen, pencil, some paper and depending on your design perhaps a ruler. Packed with inspirational designs and ideas to get you going as well as tips and projects, this book shows how to create beautiful drawings that reflect innovation, brilliance and infinite possibilities. And, for those worrying about their artistic abilities then worry not, for this step by step guide together with its sister publication, Zen Doodling Mandalas.

Synopsis

Zen Doodling by Carolyn Scrace

Zen Doodling is terrific fun and a great way to relax for children and adults of all ages. Zen Doodling releases creativity and the repetitive nature of the designs focus one's mind and encourages a sense of inner calm and tranquillity, thereby aiding meditation. It can be done anywhere, and needs no special equipment.

About the Author

Carolyn Scrace

Carolyn Scrace is a prolific illustrator and writer and is currently Art Director of The Salariya Book Company, the children's book publisher in Brighton.

Her career as an artist flourished early when, at the age of 16, her book illustrations for The Bonze Trumpeter by Jenny Nimmo were first published.
She studied illustration at Brighton College of Art during the inspiring tenure of Raymond Briggs and John Vernon Lord. Since graduating, her career has taken her into the worlds of advertising and animation as well as publishing. Carolyn's work is extremely versatile: she has illustrated numerous fiction and non-fiction books in many diverse subjects and styles.
Her work has been shortlisted many times, including the Times Education Supplement Award for her illustrations, and the ALCS Award for Educational Writing.
Carolyn has a keen interest in fashion and costume. She is also passionate about wild animals and nature, which is evident in many of the images from her recent books about Zen Doodling. She is particularly intrigued by the powerful effects of doodling to enhance relaxation, to encourage mindfulness and meditation. Her Zen Doodling books are designed specifically to develop artistic skills at all levels, from beginners onwards and are intended to challenge and inspire creativity.

Carolyn lives with her husband Michael on the edge of the rolling South Downs on the East Sussex coast. Michael, a skilled toolmaker, makes much of the stunning costume jewellery that Carolyn so adores wearing.
