Marjorie Sarnat’s fanciful coloring book style evolved from her love of patterns, which she developed through an earlier career as a textile designer. Also influencing her style is her lifelong passion for collecting vintage illustrated books and ephemera. Her love for all things nostalgic finds its way into her coloring book imagery.

Marjorie’s bestsellers include Creative Cats Coloring BookOwls Coloring Book, and Dazzling Dogs Coloring Book, together which have sold over 2 million copies worldwide in more than 18 countries. Her Elegant Elephants, Fanciful Foxes, Pampered Pets, and Fanciful Fashions coloring books earn rave reviews from new and experienced colorists alike. 

Coming in 2017 are two new titles, Creative Kittens and Playful Puppies, exciting new follow-ups to her wildly successful "Cats" and "Dogs" books. Please visit her author page on Amazon to learn more. 

In her career, Marjorie has designed hundreds of popular collectibles and crafts that have delighted collectors throughout the world. She is also an award-winning mixed-media artist whose works are in collections worldwide. In 2011 she co-founded Jr Imagination®, a publishing company whose books and games encourage creativity in children and adults.

Born and raised in Chicago, Marjorie is an alumna of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and earned a BFA degree from Eastern Michigan University.  Marjorie lives in Southern California with her husband, daughter, son, two funny dogs, and her extensive antique book collection.

“As a coloring book artist I enjoy delighting the colorist with beautiful and detailed themes on every page.
