What people are saying about
"COLOR Up is a creative approach to self-discovery. The book offers gentle and effective guidance toward self-awareness and empowerment. One assumption particularly resonates with me: Each "OOPS" is not a mistake. It is an opportunity . . . an opportunity to change things and make them better."
-- Nick Abdalla, MA, Professor Emeritus, Art & Art History, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico
"COLOR Up gives us a delightful road map for navigating the range of changes we encounter in life. The book is chock full of stories, tools, and activities to support us on our journeys toward becoming our best selves. A love of color and a passionate belief in the creative process shine through every page of COLOR Up. I definitely will recommend this book to coaching clients, friends, and family who are experiencing a life transition."

"A small paint box denotes space for self-reflection, essay question answers, or emotional brainstorming. Quotes from well-known authors, educators, and philosophers are peppered throughout and help solidify the demonstrated ideas. Fascinating paragraphs throughout the chapters--labeled "COLORing Outside the Lines"--introduce social or cultural anecdotes about color, factual reasoning into why we tend to think the way we do, and how much color has an effect on our daily life. [...]
The book's artistic approach to self-help and psychology is creative. COLOR Up forwards fun ways to approach common situations."
-- Katie Asher, Foreword Clarion Reviews
"Great for artists or those into self help who are seeking a new paradigm for thinking about their lives... Would be enjoyable in a group or workshop setting as well."

"This inspiring and terrific book helps to see our challenging world in a new light, and to get away from society's binary decision making/problem solving. It provides tools and strategies for real-world dilemmas and guides the reader into a whole new world of possibilities. I was so inspired by the book that I taught myself to crochet after years of telling myself I wouldn't be able to do it. Compliments to the authors for "rippling" positivity into the world!"
-- Annabelle Roxy
"Color Up is a significant tool for personal relationships, workplace dilemmas, community challenges, and global tensions. Personally, any idea that helps us reconsider our "us/them" and "right/wrong" perceptions is valuable. This book helped me personally when facing a recent seemingly black and white situation. When I considered the color wheel, so many options became illuminated, resulting in such freedom. I appreciate this book immensely and recommend it to all."
