Why I use color:"When I think of the world, I think in composition and color. I am constantly changing my home around to reflect what I think or the colors I want to see together and this is always evolving. If I cannot have what I see right now in color, I paint it, this may be artwork or furniture and I may also cover it with fabric as my mood changes. "
"Being an artist, I use color to tell stories. I think that a home is about the person living in it whether real or the imaginary persona desired for others to view. Understanding color for me is about this discovery and the artistic execution and constant experimentation."
2 Good color tips:
"Working with tonal colors and popping with an intense color like marigold or teal really intensifies the effect of the relationship. Do not be afraid to mix heather grey, charcoal, cream and teal for an amazing effect. Think about how these items are worn in an outfit and you can effectively pull them off in a room."
"I love mixing wood colors and often use them as the color. Do not be afraid to invite the natural object as part of your palette, rather than covering it all up in paint."
Favorite type and brand of paint:"I do not have a favorite brand, it depends on if they have the color I have in my head at that time. "
