About Rose Meadows

Rose Meadows is a collaborative of coloring book artists, formerly called the Coloring Group.

We create stylish coloring books for adults. They’re designed to provide a sense of calm relaxation, and help reduce stress.

This website is about our coloring books – how we create them and how people color them.

We share personal insights, free samples, and news about our current projects and newest books.

Our contributing authors include…
