DA in Paint

Daring Adventures In Paint is a colorful, whimsical adventure of a book that explores inspirational paint and mixed-media techniques. Written by the well-loved artist/illustrator/blogger Mati Rose McDonough, this book’s approach to making art is a bit like uncovering a hidden treasure, a treasure that resides within each aspiring artist. Through a myriad of both practical applications and creative exercises, Mati shows artists how to “find their magic”—the place of confidence from which they can access the vision of what they want to share with the world.





Mati Rose McDonough went back to art school when she was just shy of 30 years old to study painting and illustration at the California College of the Arts. She made art from the time she was very little growing up in Maine, but never considered herself an artist until recently. Now at 37, Mati has had dozens of art shows, taught painting classes internationally and had her art and illustrations used for Patagonia, University Games, Pier 1, as well as greeting cards, children’s books, her painting book and her very own furniture line with Creative Coop. She is represented by Lilla Rogers Studio for illustration & licensing.  www.matirose.com
