I am an illustrator. I began drawing and painting very early, pursuing design in my early years of college. After a break to start a family, I returned to university to earn a PhD in science. I worked in research for many years, but always turned to art in my spare time. I am passionate about art and science.
MireliBooks is company I started to develop products that foster learning and creativity. I like creating art that can engage the viewer. Coloring books and boards have the potential to create a personal interaction with the user. Coloring is a soothing mindfulness activity that is meditative and can relieve stress. It promotes wellness by stimulating brain areas related to motor skills, the senses, and creativity. I like that my art can positively affect the well-being of individuals.
