Liverpool artist’s coloring book to be auctioned

Published on May 19, 2017

The Trailer Park Boys have done their job for Liverpool artist Julie Ann Babin. Her book, Colour Nova Scotia, will feature pages colored by notable Nova Scotia artists.

LIVERPOOL  - The Colour Nova Scotia online colouring book auction for the E 2017 IWK TELETHON is now up and running. (  

100% of the proceeds from the auction of each book will be presented to the IWK at the 2017 IWK Telethon on June 3rd and 4th.

Julie Babin is a Liverpool artist who decided to jump on the adult colouring book wagon with a new book called Colour Nova Scotia.

“I love colouring and I love Nova Scotia so I said ‘yeah, let’s do that’,” she says.

“I’ve always loved colouring. And then this adult colouring book craze came out, and all of a sudden it wasn’t just teddy bears and bunnies, it was really cool things to colour, it kind of inspired me to do this.”

Babin’s book features scenes from Nova Scotia that she drew herself. Many of them are from Queens County – including Carters Beach, the Mersey Band,  and bunnies at White Point Beach Resort. But it doesn’t stop in Queens. There are scenes from Halifax, Amherst, Lunenburg, and many other colourful Nova Scotia communities.

Celebrated Nova Scotianias such as Ellen Page, Olympian Ellie Black, muscians Jimmy Rankin and Myles Goodwyn former Nova Scotia Lieutenant Governor Mayann Francis and Geoff Regan, Speaker of the House, have coloured pages in their colouring books which are now up for auction. Over the next few weeks we will also be adding colouring books from Academy award nominated actor Ellen Page and many more.
