About this week’s Coloring Book inspiration, she says, “A phrase that always pops into my head when it comes to gratitude is ‘I’m just happy to be here.’ Every day that I wake up healthy at home with my family, I feel just that—happy to be there. It’s so hard to feel gratitude when there is so much uncertainty around us, so we have to look to the things that we do have, the certainties, and feel truly present and appreciative of them. Combining gratitude and nature is perfect—the days where it’s easiest to get to that happy place are when I can also spend a few moments outside appreciating all of the color and beauty around me.”

Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn

Shauna Lynn Panczyszyn is an illustrator and lettering artist based in Chicago. She works out of her home studio with her pup, Teddy Bear, creating work that is often described as whimsical. Her goal when she creates is to make work that would make her inner five-year old proud. She loves creating bright and colorful illustrations that feature lettering and is constantly striving to push her skills further. She says, “When Adobe invited me to create a coloring book page, I knew I wanted to create something focused around a positive quote and draw florals. I consulted some vintage books for floral inspiration and found that I wanted it to feel like a mature children's book, retaining whimsy and hopefully bringing a little bit of wonder to whoever downloads it.”
