Hi! My name is Jennifer Stay. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.
First and foremost I’m a mom to two amazing boys who are growing up too fast. I’m a wife to the love of my life for over 20 years, and I’m the best friend to the sweetest maltese dog in the world named Rose. I live amongst the stunning Wasatch Mountains of Utah and would love to someday live in a cabin near a mountain stream
I have been designing and selling coloring pages for several years through my website. Over that time, my art has been downloaded thousands of times by people all over the world. I still get a shy thrill every time I imagine someone thousands of miles away, that can’t even speak my language, coloring my art. The Internet is an amazing thing!
I draw and color almost every day. I use my art as a “blissful” way to cope with several debilitating chronic pain issues that I have been living with for over a decade (no one’s life is perfect). This gives me a unique perspective on the power of art and our need as humans to be creative. I have recently been using this perspective to help other people who suffer from chronic pain by showing them how to use coloring as a pain coping mechanism. Through social media, I have had the joy of hearing from many people who are already benefiting from my tips and my art. It’s very humbling, and brings a sense of purpose and fulfillment to my life.
When I’m creating coloring pages I’m constantly thinking about you coloring the spaces that I’m drawing. I wonder about the colors you’ll choose and if I’ve added enough details to inspire you. I know you’ll find the spots where my hand may have slipped a little and I wonder, “do you think of me?” I wish I could see your finished work of colorful art because I see this as a fun collaboration between artists.
I hope you enjoy this website of the pages I have created. There are books and other products to come in the near future. To hear about my latest projects you can sign up for a membership on my website or follow my page on Facebook. I always love to hear from my colorful friends.
In the meantime, you can picture me “blissfully” drawing more coloring pages with Rose curled at my side. I will be wondering if you would rather have me fill a certain section with circles or diagonal lines.
