Art Director, creative mentor and designer Rachael Taylor presents her book "Power Up Your Creativity. Ignite Your Creative Spark - Develop a Productive Practice - Set Goals and Achieve Your Dreams" published by Quarto Publishing Group – Walter Foster. After the introduction the book is divided into ten chapters: 1) Begin - How do I identify where to begin?, 2) Inspiration - How do I become and stay inspired?, 3) Courage - What do I need to be creatively courageous?, 4) Clarity - How do I clarify my vision?, 5) Evolve - Do I need to evolve?, 6) Motivation - How do I stay motivated?, 7) Create - How do I create with intention?, 8) Longevity - How can I achieve creative longevity?, 9) Destination - I’ve reached my destination. What now?, and 10) Power - How do I know—and own—my power? The chapters always begin with "Thoughts to Ponder". The book also includes "Shared Experience" which is input from Taylor's clients, mentees, or other artists throughout the book. The creative exercises challenge readers to put into practice what they have read. An extensive list of resources as well as an index complete the book.I really appreciate the book. It is not a "how-to" book, but a guide that will help readers - no matter if there are beginning or advanced artists - to find a sense of clarity on their artistic journey and to improve or extend their creativity. As such I recommend it for them.The complimentary copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley free of charge. I was under no obligation to offer a positive review. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.#PowerUpYourCreativity #Netgalley

The media could not be loaded.  Yes, another book about creativity, but this one is so inviting! First of all, the colors and beautiful pictures throughout the book. There are full page images with beautiful textures, while other pages have simple graphics: everything is so fun and easy to take in. I wasn't familiar with the author, but it sounds like she has a large following. What I love, is her straight forward, caring and very vulnerable writing, about her own experience, but also about how to tackle issues like that feeling that you might get when comparing your work to others and find yourself lacking, etc. (She calls that the Comparison Demon) The book is full of helpful quotes, tips, suggestions and prompts to get you out of your rut and going again. What I really like is the additional focus from just creativity to applying it in business, without it being specifically tailored to that. It gives you tremendous freedom to apply creativity in a large variety of ways. I'll be going back to this book regularly for inspiration and to get some new perspectives.All I can say is YUM!

I was expecting something more how-to, but was pleasantly surprised and impressed with this book. Full of inspiring concepts - some of which I don’t entirely agree with - to help you on your creative journey. I like that this book makes you think, not just create.

Great layout and format. I like the larger softback size and the mix of color, graphics and content are really well thought out. I haven't made my way through the whole book yet, but so far I'm really enjoying working through the different activities and trying to put each into practice. Some are thought prompts, some are activities, but so far all have really done a great job of helping me reengage my creative side.

POWER UP YOUR CREATIVITY is a colorful, easy-to-read, optimistic book for artists of all kinds. Author Rachael Taylor shares information how to make your vision more clear and how to commit to seeing it through.Her insightful comments such as, “Flowers don’t bloom all year” and “If we dream small we act small” are worth contemplating.
