Marie Dunkle is originally from Harrisburg Pennsylvania. She studied art at Millersville University of Pennsylvania, obtaining a Bachelor of Fine arts degree, and is now pursuing a Masters in education. Marie likes to spend her free time drawing, painting, playing video games, reading, and hanging out with her pets family and friends. She compiled this book after completing three years of drawings for an event called Inktober in which artists draw every day for 30 days in October. Her love of her pets inspired the artwork, and the coloring book craze of recent years inspired her to compile them into
a book that could be enjoyed by people of all ages and abilities.
