The Crazy Creatures Colouring Book, a fine art colouring book from artist Liz Parkinson, features an imaginative slant on Australian animals. These wonderfully creative black and white drawings make perfect colouring pages for little hands and big hands alike.



“Here is an exciting new colouring book by the artist Liz Parkinson, which will stimulate any child’s imagination, by transporting him or her into a magical world. This is a place full of crazy creatures, which fly, swim, crawl or just laze about. Each page opens with a different story of real and mythical animals, which will give inquisitive children plenty to think about as they look for the right colours. The eye-catching cover of the book gives a young and old a lead into how to colour the pictures inside.

Liz has a vivid imagination and in many cases she has juxtaposed different animals together, which would never meet in a real world. Examples of this are: The pussy and the prawns; and The whale and the bird.

The artist hasn’t studied art academically, and so has approached the project with a fresh perspective on the world. In real life, she shares her rainforest environment with lots of diverse fauna and flora, which continues to inspire her creativity. This book, of 70 crazy drawings, would make a great present for anybody.”

Liz Parkinson is a self-taught artist from Australia who lives on the edge of a rainforest near the sea. It's a very, very nice place with a lovely mild climate.

Liz loves drawing all the crazy creatures that live in the rainforest near her home, and enjoys inventing others. Wandering around wild-life parks gives her ideas, and she thinks that animals are definitely funnier than people!

Her work is represented in art collections world-wide. She has also exhibited in many art shows and been featured in a number of art journals, including the international Raw Vision in November 2013.
