Creating the space to be CREATIVE


The Coloring Project creates products and services that harness the benefits of coloring as a tool for mindfulness, focus, transformation and self-discovery. The Coloring Project is an engagement tool in both the corporate, non-profit and education landscape – used in meetings, conferences, leadership and team building training events, community engagement events, etc.

Our Team

Andrea Koehler

Founder and Chief Coloring Officer

Andrea is known by many names – That Coloring Lady, the Asker of Hard Questions, the Singer of Show Tunes – but, by far, her favorite is the Creator of Transformational Spaces.

She is on a mission to create a world where everyone knows how powerful they are and, to that end, she lives to create spaces for self-awareness and transformation.

As the founder of The Coloring Project and Coloring Broadway, she opens the backdoor to self-discovery using coloring as a tool for mindfulness, helping people quiet their inner critic so that they can access their inner “artist”, and sharing show tunes as a way express our emotions when words fail.

As a leadership coach and trainer, she will be kind and understanding, she will listen and reflect, AND she will ask you those “pointy” questions that make you want to flip her off but also make you think, ponder and step into your own power.

She’s hilarious and witty – at least in her own head – and when not coloring, you can find her at the theater watching a musical or on the Salsa floor dancing her feet off!

She’s driven by fire and passion and, “there’s a million things *she* hasn’t done … Just you wait.” She WILL break into show tunes without warning – so consider yourself warned.

Jessica Komori

Jessica is a champion corporate plate spinner.  From balancing multiple projects with complex requirements to managing diverse staff dynamics and implementing strategic initiatives, all in both English and Spanish; she creates “la combinacion perfecta.”

Jessica thrives in environments where she gets to use her powers to see the bigger picture AND understand the details necessary to achieve it.  Where most people struggle with the minutiae of administration, she takes it all in and outputs diamonds. She possesses both strategic vision and a fiery passion; her leadership ability creates environments where employees thrive, and projects succeed.

Another of Jessica’s superpowers is the ability assess available ingredients and magically turn them into a meal fit for a king, whether that be in the workplace or the kitchen.  Seriously, if she ever offers to “whip something up” – take her up on it.

As a woman of Bolivian and Japanese descent, Jessica has resided in the United States for almost three decades, forming unbreakable friendships and learning from the book of life. Her business expertise and international background is matched by her desire to unify fellow human beings through laughter, dance, creativity and love.

When not working on The Coloring Project, you can find Jessica in her role as Fearless mother of three brilliant children, teaching salsa dancing, and obsessing over Marc Anthony (ask her to tell you her “stage” story).
