Though we each walk unique paths, what is common to the human experience is that we all go through times of transformation and transition.  These periods are often the most challenging, but also where we have the greatest opportunity to recreate ourselves and find our unique purposes! “Creating Gray Spaces” refers to these transitional periods in life, where we may need a helping hand and the support of the community around us.

Our Story

About our Logo

A semicolon represents resilience and survival. For many who struggle with mental health conditions like anxiety, sadness, etc., the semicolon is a source of pride. This is because, similar to how a semicolon indicates how a sentence is being carried rather than a complete stop that would end the sentence, the semicolon represents going on amidst the setbacks.

Kim / Writer
Kim loves creative writing (particularly fiction), is a self-published author, and is passionate about helping other authors bring their creative projects to life. She has years of experience writing in the non-profit and corporate world.



Nicole’s giving spirit was evident immediately and she continues to mentor me and others, not only in the finer elements of art and owning an art gallery, but more so in the value of service to her artists and to her customers.  Nicole’s passion for art and service to others is further demonstrated through her charity and nonprofit works.  I am very excited to join her on her journey of service and enlightenment with her latest project, Gray Spaces.

Kim helped me navigate the self-publishing process when I decided to publish my first novel. She listened to what I wanted to achieve with my book and gave me guidance on how to find an editor and a graphic designer for my book cover. There’s so much that goes into publishing a book like choosing a Print on Demand Service (POD), getting an ISBN, and securing a copyright.  Kim provided the assistance I needed along the way.  She patiently communicated back and forth with me whenever I had questions. I would definitely use her as a consultant for my future books. She is who I refer everyone to when embarking on their publishing journey.

My child was in the 2nd grade reading on the kindergartner reading level.  Chantel spent extra time after school tutoring my child and by the end of the school year, he was on reading level and enjoying reading.  I am completely pleased with the results of her service and forever grateful to her for helping him succeed.
