"The Christie Hospital is the largest single Cancer Centre in Europe. In October 2003, we developed a multi-arts project across the hospital and in wards with patients who were unwell and recovering from surgery.

"Carol, aka The Doodle Lady, has visited my third grade classroom on numerous occasions to share her innovative art program. Her lessons celebrate each child's unique creativity. She gives the kids a few guidelines, shows some examples, and off they go. She encourages the kids to go beyond this one lesson and use doodling as an everyday, stress-free tool. She delivers her powerful message of personal well-being and embracing life in a gentle, fun way. I highly recommend her as a perfect inspirational speaker..."

"Carol's presentation was wonderful! 'Doodle Art' is perfect for school-age children because every single child can be successful. Artistic failure is non-existent. The 2nd graders were so intent on the process, they didn't even realize they were developing artistic skills. Every 'doodle' was unique and special. Doodle art should be part of the art curriculum for all grade levels. Everyone can create a masterpiece."

"As a stressed out mom of two and full-time 3rd grade teacher, Carol’s program has been an island of calm in my otherwise hectic life. Doodling has allowed me and my students to destress, regroup, and refocus. Thank you Carol! You have changed our lives for the better."
