Jennifer Stay with Maltese Dog Rose

About Me

– Posted in: Coloring

Hi! My name is Jennifer Stay. I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself.

First and foremost I’m a mom to two amazing boys who are growing up too fast. I’m a wife to the love of my life for over 20 years, and I’m the best friend to the sweetest maltese dog in the world named Rose. I live amongst the stunning Wasatch Mountains of Utah and would love to someday live in a cabin near a mountain stream

I have been designing and selling coloring pages for several years through my website. Over that time, my art has been downloaded thousands of times by people all over the world. I still get a shy thrill every time I imagine someone thousands of miles away, that can’t even speak my language, coloring my art. The Internet is an amazing thing!

I draw and color almost every day. I use my art as a “blissful” way to cope with several debilitating chronic pain issues that I have been living with for over a decade (no one’s life is perfect). This gives me a unique perspective on the power of art and our need as humans to be creative. I have recently been using this perspective to help other people who suffer from chronic pain by showing them how to use coloring as a pain coping mechanism. Through social media, I have had the joy of hearing from many people who are already benefiting from my tips and my art. It’s very humbling, and brings a sense of purpose and fulfillment to my life.

When I’m creating coloring pages I’m constantly thinking about you coloring the spaces that I’m drawing. I wonder about the colors you’ll choose and if I’ve added enough details to inspire you. I know you’ll find the spots where my hand may have slipped a little and I wonder, “do you think of me?” I wish I could see your finished work of colorful art because I see this as a fun collaboration between artists.

I hope you enjoy this website of the pages I have created. There are books and other products to come in the near future. To hear about my latest projects you can sign up for a membership on my website or follow my page on Facebook. I always love to hear from my colorful friends.

In the meantime, you can picture me “blissfully” drawing more coloring pages with Rose curled at my side. I will be wondering if you would rather have me fill a certain section with circles or diagonal lines.

Jennifer, I love your artwork ! Do you have any coloring books available on the web? If not you should consider it!
Thanks. Yvonne

Jennifer Stay September 29, 2015, 6:22 pm

Thank you so much Yvonne! Actually, I have the art done for my first coloring book and am working on getting it published. I have also started drawing for my second book as well. I’ll let everyone know via Facebook and email when the book is ready to purchase!

Karen November 30, 2015, 4:06 pm

Jennifer, Thank You So much for your Beautiful artwork. I’ve always wished that I could draw like you do but since I’m not very good at it, I’ll keep my creating with pencils to coloring your Beautiful creations! I’m always looking forward to your next new artwork! Thanks again for the new Christmas creations to color! Best Wishes on your upcoming books!
Thanks, Karen

Jennifer Stay November 30, 2015, 4:50 pm

Thank you Karen–that means a lot to me. 🙂

Pam K January 29, 2016, 2:02 pm

you are wonderful 🙂
I’m soooo glad I joined!
I just printed out the “free” hearts page – just in time for Valentine’s Day! Will hopefully finish by then!
Have a great day, Pam

Jennifer Stay January 29, 2016, 4:51 pm

You’re so nice. 🙂 Thank you for your kind words. Let me know how the Valentine’s Day page turns out. 😉

Heather February 24, 2016, 7:13 am

Thanks so much for generously sharing your talents and passion! You have amazing ideas and artwork. Thank you.

Jennifer Stay February 24, 2016, 4:52 pm

Thank you! And you’re welcome. 🙂

Sarah March 1, 2016, 10:04 pm

I love your coloring pages! I started with the free pages and enjoyed them so much I just signed up for premium. I love the variety and your whimsical style! I also suffer from chronic illnesses and I color every single day. I’m a marker girl so I prefer to print out my pages onto card stock and this is perfect.
Many well wishes to you.

Jennifer Stay March 2, 2016, 4:55 pm

Thank you Sarah! It makes me feel so happy to know that my artwork is helping a fellow pain warrior! And thank you so much for your support! 🙂

Joycelyn March 30, 2016, 10:19 am

I am a Breast Cancer Survivor. Would consider drawing anything that has ribbons or anything for us Cancer Survivors? I love coloring your pictures.

Jennifer Stay March 30, 2016, 10:34 am

Thank you Joycelyn. I’ll definitely consider that.

Sue Edwards June 4, 2016, 4:02 am

I just found you and your beautiful art. I’m so excited to color some of your free pages. I am a Copic marker colorist, so being able to print out on cardstock the pages I like is awesome! I, also, have chronic pain, like a lot of us, and coloring with my newly rescued kitty, Cali, at night is a beautiful end to my days. And we color in the daytime, also! I’m also a breast cancer survivor of almost 25 years. I’ve been doing Adult Coloring before there was ‘Adult Coloring’. It is a beautiful addiction that has given me peace and contentment for many years.

Jennifer Stay June 6, 2016, 9:11 am

Thank you for sharing Sue–what a beautiful story. It’s amazing how much our sweet little fur babies combined with coloring help!

Wesmoms August 5, 2016, 11:42 pm

Kudos to you guys who can use coloring to get away from your pain. I’ve not managed to figure that out yet, coloring while really hurting. And of course, when really, really hurting (as most of the time), it’s a bit hard to see through the tears. I suffer from RSD (full body) and all the fun stuff that comes with it. I also have lupus, RA, and other health issues.

Thank you for giving suggestions for coloring as a coping mechanism. I know it will help a lot of people! 🙂

Oh, ps, one lady who had cancer suggested perhaps you could draw a ribbon or ribbons. I don’t know if you have, but you might consider just drawing the ribbon “outline” and incorporating it somehow into a drawing, or make it the focus of a drawing. That way, anyone could use it and color it however they wanted to for a particular disease-ie: pink for breast cancer, green for kidney transplant, and so on.

Jennifer Stay August 6, 2016, 2:17 pm

I Tammy, I’m so sorry for all of the pain you’re in. It’s just not fair. 🙁 Regarding your suggestion, I love it–I’ll definitely do something like that. Thank you.

Ginger Dixson October 28, 2016, 5:59 pm

I love your videos, I couldn’t figure out how to leave a comment on you tube so I thought I would try here. Please keep new videos coming! They are fantastic. I also was wondering where you got your tan pencil cases from? They look so useful. Thank you, Ginger

janet November 15, 2016, 5:53 pm

ty so much jennifer for sharing you with us…i recently lost my only child and coloring has been the best therapy in the inspire me with your pages and i download them all to the point to where i go through 2 ink cartrages a day…i love the new large case and would love to purchase one ..

Nikita November 17, 2016, 11:05 am

Hi Jennifer,

Just discovered you yesterday, I am starting with pyrography and was looking for designs to burn and thats how I found you.

Since your designs are full size I can easily adjust them for my burning needs, lol that sounded kinda weird.

I’m from the Netherlands, another dot on your virtual travel map.

Saddens me to hear you are in so much pain p, but happy you found a coping mechanism.

Reading is my ultimate guilty pleasure through every part of life.


Jennifer Stay November 21, 2016, 10:15 am

Hi Nikita 🙂 That sounds really cool! I’d love to see your work. If you get a chance, please share it with me on my Facebook page:

Dani January 16, 2017, 1:24 pm

Jennifer, I too am dealing with chronic pain. I am trying to see if coloring will help. So far..not so much.
However, since I found your tutorials on coloring with pencil crayons (as you say) I have found myself more involved with my coloring. Hoping and Praying that I can focus on the page and not the pain.
As far as I am concerned you are an angel. And since you too deal with chronic pain I am hoping I can learn from you on using coloring as a pain management tool.
Thank you so much for your wonderful tutorials and sharing your techniques and ideas with us. Your art is amazing and I love coloring your pages.
I pray you continue to find peace and less pain in helping us to become more involved in our coloring and helping us to learn to have a Blissful coloring experience.
Thank you for all you do!!!!
Hugs and Prayers

Jennifer Stay January 23, 2017, 9:38 am

Thank you so much Dani. I’m sorry you have to deal with chronic pain too–I hope and pray you’ll find even a small measure of relief through this process.

Phyllis Stuart January 23, 2017, 10:37 am

Hi Jennifer! I recently found you on YouTube & have been binge watching your videos! I’m so glad I found you. You have a wonderful gift for teaching & also a very uplifting spirit. I also suffer from chronic pain, am permanently disabled, & almost completely home bound. Coloring & crocheting are my creative outlets & both help me manage my pain & my sanity! ? I feel a kinship to you knowing that you’re a fellow sufferer. I know many colorists probably have similar problems. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us! Keep those videos coming! ? Praying you have a blessed & pain free day!

Jennifer Stay January 23, 2017, 2:51 pm

Thank you so much for your kind words Phyllis. I do feel it’s important and helpful for us to come together and support each other–it’s always good to know that you’re not alone in your trials. I look forward to getting to know you better. 🙂

norma February 3, 2017, 9:13 am

Jennifer Stay February 6, 2017, 3:04 pm

Oh, thank you so much Karen–that means a lot. 🙂

Thanks for the free coloring pages. I’m looking forward to coloring them. I love all the different designs and Rose is such a sweet dog. I believe she co-stars in some of your videos..Lol!

Jennifer Stay February 13, 2017, 12:24 pm

Rose is so sweet–I need to show her more. 😉

So nice to meet you! I am new to coloring pages. I just love your artwork. My mom is an artist of many mediums. She inspires me and so do your free coloring pages! Thanks so much!

Jennifer Stay February 14, 2017, 12:47 pm

You’re welcome Carey! 🙂

Donna Fluty February 15, 2017, 3:46 am

Id like to say I have only been a member a couple weeks but truly have been blessed by your work. I’m a retired nurse and now a grandmother and active in women’s ministry through our church. I have also suffered with chronic pain for years as I have Lupus. Some days I just don’t get out of bed. Coloring has been a tool for me as well as writing poetry since I was about 10 yrs old. I will continue to enjoy your work and tutorials and tell all my friends about this site. By the way, you would love where I live. In the hills of Eastern Kentucky! Donna

Jennifer Stay February 15, 2017, 3:29 pm

I’m so glad you found me and my community Donna! Thank you for your kind words. 🙂

Sherry Corbett February 16, 2017, 7:19 am

Now I know the inspiration behind your adorable puppy pics! I too am a critter mom and mother of two boys. Of all the skills I wish I had, drawing would certainly be one…I do so enjoy your work and thank you for sharing!

Jennifer Stay February 16, 2017, 10:05 am

Thank you Sherry. Yes, I love my little Rose. 🙂

Linda Crowder February 21, 2017, 1:28 am

I am blessed to have found your videos on You Tube which led me to this page and YOU! I too have Chronic Pain Syndrome and Fibromyalgia and you know the rest. I picked up coloring when HSN has the Spectrum Noir markers on special in March. I live in a senior apartment complex with my roommate Shirley (both widows) and there is a coloring group here. We are a 90 unit complex and everyone knows everyone else and all are over 60. Such fun for retired people. I however still work as a pet-sitter. I only have 3 clients now, but one travels a lot with their business and I am as busy as I wish to be. My coloring goes with me as I have lots of free time when I am staying at a person’s home for days or weeks. I know we will become great coloring buds. Thanks for being there and believe me, when I pick up a pencil to follow one of your videos or visit your website, I WILL be thinking of you. And what a special person you are to share your talent with us. Linda Crowder

Jennifer Stay February 22, 2017, 2:57 pm

Thank you so much for sharing Linda–I look forward to getting to know you better. 🙂

Teresa February 22, 2017, 9:33 am

What a beautiful pictures you create. Thanks for sharing your art and ideas to someone who is clueless in art. Putting your teachings to paper opens a new world for me. Your ideas have made me try my hand at coloring. Again, thank you for sharing your talents.

Jennifer Stay February 22, 2017, 9:42 am

Thank you Teresa–it makes me happy to hear my tutorials are helping you.

Beverly February 23, 2017, 8:32 pm

Have really enjoyed downloading your art.

Jennifer Stay February 24, 2017, 4:22 pm

Thank you Beverly. 🙂

Mandy Cross February 24, 2017, 3:07 pm

I love your coloring pages. You can tell you enjoy drawing them.

Jennifer Stay February 24, 2017, 4:27 pm

Thank you Mandy. Yes, they are a lot of fun to draw. 🙂

Meghan February 26, 2017, 10:32 pm

Hi, I love your art 🙂 it’s so beautiful, I’ve also been watching as many of your videos as possible, I like to watch them for inspiration as I color.

Jennifer Stay February 27, 2017, 4:30 pm

Thank you so much Meghan. 🙂

Kate Richardson February 27, 2017, 12:17 pm

Hi Jennifer, I really love your videos on you tube, I have learned a lot from watching you, I live in the UK, I am over60, I have spinal stenosis of my lower spine, which means I sit down a lot,so I love to colour, my favourite books are flower colouring books, my favourite coloured pencils are Faber-Castell Polychromos, I’m after some Holbein coloured pencils which are from Japan and are expensive. Love Kate Richardson x

Jennifer Stay February 27, 2017, 4:31 pm

Thank you Kate. I would love to get my hands on some Holbeins–so nice! 😉

Annette Sonneson March 6, 2017, 4:11 pm

I’ve just discovered your YouTube channel. Thank you! I am not on any social media, so I don’t know if I subscribed as a free member correctly. By watching your polychromos video, I am surely going to order a few. I have the Prismacolor 150 set. I do love them, but it seems I could definitely add some variety. One thing I would like to add, as an almost beginner, I have had a lot of luck with the shading technique by using a Prismacolor Verithin black. I seem to have much better luck than using a regular black or gray tone. I’m sure in time I will become more proficient with the regular pencil. Thank you again! I cannot wait to watch your video on Chameleon markers. I bought these quite some time ago and have NEVER learned the technique.

peg pearce March 13, 2017, 12:20 pm

Hi Jennifer! My name is Peg, and I also suffer from chronic all over pain, amongst other debilitating health problems, and have found coloring to take my mind off the pain and get some relief even if just for a little while! I’m a new member and I’m so glad I found you on utube! Your information and friendly delivery are a pleasure and makes me come take a peek here each day to see what you are up to…lol. Thanks tons for creating such a nice environment to fill my time with! Hope you are doing well and having a super day!

Jennifer Stay March 13, 2017, 4:47 pm

I’m so glad you found me and my community–I hope that we can help even a little. And thank you so much for your kind words.

Jean Benci March 14, 2017, 3:21 pm

Just inadvertently found your coloring pages. Am so excited! Watched one of your tutorials on gel Pens yesterday which was very informative. I had considered coloring with gels and now I am anxious to try that.

Krisztina Kovacs March 15, 2017, 4:36 am

Hi Jennifer! You do lovely artwork! I’m totally new to colouring but I can really appreciate your work.

John Guy March 16, 2017, 4:39 pm

How small the world is! I found your video on Youtube because I was looking for reviews on Prismacolor pencils. I took up coloring to get my mind off the nonstop pain I deal with every day and now I find you have the same problem. THe world never ceases to amaze me. You at least have talent, I recently told a dear friend my only art talent was being able to color and stay inside the lines. Keep up the wonderful work!!!

Jennifer Stay March 17, 2017, 2:25 pm

Thank you John! 🙂

Deborah March 18, 2017, 4:00 am

You have a download page that says ‘NAME NOT RESOLVED’.

I am also one of the walking wounded. Depression and anxiety for 25 years. Stopped me from working.

I just recently found out about adult coloring pages (March). Your reviews have been an excellent resource in getting me started with free pages and recommendations on tools.

If you go to you can get a free download of brush lettering pages, if you decide to do a video on lettering.

Thanks for listening,

Jennifer Stay March 18, 2017, 10:12 am

Thank you for the recommendation Deborah, and I’m glad to hear my reviews are helping even just a little.

Kate Richardson March 25, 2017, 1:27 am

Hi Jennifer, Since my February message to you, I have done some research and found a shop in Japan that sold Holbein coloured pencils for a better price than Amazon so I am now the owner of the most amazing set of beautiful coloured pencils, the colours are amazing.

Jennifer Stay March 25, 2017, 1:34 pm

Lucky you…that’s wonderful! Now that’s happy coloring! 🙂

Deborah Stoll March 25, 2017, 8:15 am

I’m just bursting to tell you that since I’ve joined your group I color a page a day. Why? Because I love your work and I can hardly wait to get started each morning. I post a new page to you and three other coloring groups every day! Giving your site credit, of course.

Since watching your videos I’m on the brink starting with a blank page and doodling myself a masterpiece, abstract to start off with. And who knows where it will lead?

Thanks for putting this whole thing together. You’ve improved my life considerably.

Yours faithfully,
Deborah Stoll

Jennifer Stay March 25, 2017, 1:36 pm

Thank you so much Deborah–you put a big smile on my face today. Thank you for sharing such a sweet comment. Please share your masterpiece with me when you’re done. 😉

KariM March 30, 2017, 7:03 pm

I am enjoying your artwork and wanting to begin coloring

Jennifer Stay March 31, 2017, 1:59 pm

I’m so happy to hear that Kari–thank you for sharing. 🙂

Kate Robson April 3, 2017, 9:55 pm

Hi Jennifer, love your artwork. You have inspired me to get stuck into something I have loved since my school days. Colouring is so much fun, I would never thought of using gel pens. Thank you.

Jennifer Stay April 8, 2017, 11:38 am

You’re welcome Kate! And thank YOU for being a part of my community. 🙂

Denise Raposa April 6, 2017, 10:10 pm

I enjoyed reading about you and your family. I love your art work and have watched several of your videos. Thanks for sharing your talent and time.

Jennifer Stay April 8, 2017, 11:39 am

You’re welcome Denise. 🙂

AriellaA April 6, 2017, 10:30 pm

I really like what you draw 🙂

Ritag April 8, 2017, 6:02 am

your information helps me to learn colouring!

Kathleen April 26, 2017, 5:39 pm

Hi Jennifer! I’m a new member. I love to color too!! I gpt kind of bored with it because I was doing just basic coloring and a little shading. I’ve reviewed your video tutorials and have been inspired to try out the techniques you shared. I have a lot of color pencils and gel pens, now I can experiment with them as well. Thank you for inspiring me to color again!

Desertlady April 27, 2017, 11:07 am

Hi Jennifer. You have done an amazing job with you website and you tube channel. Can’t wait to check out your other social media sites!

Teresa Jackson June 5, 2017, 1:11 pm

I found your review on Irotijen pencils extremely helpful and informative, and am now enjoying learning how to use my own new set of these lovely colors (I think they will pair beautifully with my Prismacolors, and other coloring and art media). I am looking forward to seeing your other videos, and your website looks to be filled with helpful hints and projects (and the first I found valuable enough to pay for–$5 a month is a bargain just for the information). Thanks.

LPham June 13, 2017, 6:06 am

Hi Jennifer. Thank you for your wonderful blog. It is really helping me revitalize the way that I color.

LindaP June 15, 2017, 1:07 pm

You are a very talented young woman.

Thank you for sharing your art work 😉

Deb June 18, 2017, 2:48 pm

Hi Jennifer,
I also suffer from chronic pain. I am really enjoying coloring. At first it caused more pain but I struggled through and while I can still feel the pain somehow my mind can transcend beyond it when I color. My faith also helps during our troubling times. Thanks for your videos and coloring pages. Not sure how you find time for it all but I’m thankful you are here. God bless.

Cheryl Rigney June 30, 2017, 8:39 am

Thank you for all of the hard work you put into your videos. I am learning many new things. I’m currently working on swatching my new Prismacolor 150 set.

Shirley Holler July 14, 2017, 2:09 pm

I am new, and I am recovering from rotary cuff surgery, thanks. Still just using color pencils nothing special

Jennifer Stay July 24, 2017, 7:41 pm

Well keep it up Shirley! Thank you for joining our community. 🙂

Bonnie M H. July 26, 2017, 4:13 pm

I am so glad I found you! You have wonderful ideas. I enjoy your videos. Than you for sharing your talent with all of us.

Denise Daniel July 27, 2017, 12:49 pm

I am just beginning to really get into coloring. Your artwork is beautiful and very nicely done. I am enjoying your pages.

Jennifer Stay July 29, 2017, 9:08 am

Thank you Denise 🙂

Mrs Katharine Richardson August 25, 2017, 2:58 am

Hi Jennifer. I replied to your T’gaal pencil sharpener review, it is my favourite, I have bought at least 5 so that proves that I like them,I hope you will read what I wrote as I asked if you would review some gel pens,I have a question for you and Steve, how safe is Facebook and would my details be really safe and private, please let me know.
Thank you
Kate Richardson in the UK

Jennifer Stay August 30, 2017, 2:22 pm

Thank you for your comments and suggestions Katharine–you’re awesome. 🙂 Regarding Facebook, I know that they do a lot to keep our information private; however, nothing is invulnerable. One thing that’s good is that it’s up to you to share as much or as little personal information as you would like. So if privacy is a concern for you, you may want to put very little personal info and be really selective with your privacy settings.
