Curled, Whirled & Twisted Coloring Book by Jennifer Herrera is full of wonderful swirls, birds and other complicated characters. Jennifer's drawings and paintings carefully converted into black and white vector outlines.
Jennifer Herrera's work is neither completely abstract nor naturalistic but seeks to represent the seen, the unseen, and the place where they meet. Borders and boundaries, as well as the crossing or dissolving of them, fascinate her. In her images that in between space is full of color, swirls, vegetation and bursts of other details. These may be indicative of emotional or spiritual factors that influence and sometimes merge with the figures that inhabit them. The overflow of color and pattern does seek to be pleasing to the eye, but hopes to also express something more. She has simplified and removed the color from her images to create this coloring book. She hopes adding the color back will allow others to experience her art at a new level. Herrera was born and raised in the mountains of North Carolina. She studied at North Carolina School of the Arts and Appalachian State University, however Mexico, its people, culture and art influenced her art significantly.She lived in southern Mexico for 7 years, her children were born there, and she often says it was the tropical sun that brightened her palette from her earlier dark monochromatic art to the bright pieces she creates currently. Her art is almost always colorful and stuffed full of birds, wide eyed faces, swirls and vegetation.
