Millie, a 37-year-old illustrator and freelance artist, lives in the beautiful seaside town of Tenby in Wales. It was this closeness to nature that inspired her to develop an obsession with all things flora and fauna. The intricate patterns of her work capture this love, and her detailed designs are a natural fit for a coloring book. Amazingly, all her images for the books are drawn by hand!
