“Color possesses me. I don’t have to pursue it. It will possess me always, I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour: Color and I are one. I am a painter. Paul Klee

There are those who don’t believe that even a basic knowledge of colour theory is necessary in order to design successfully. Some of these people, the lucky ones,  fall into the category of those who were born with an innate colour sense.  The rest?  Well….as I said, a little bit of colour theory never hurt anyone….

I had to learn about colour and from the moment I painted the obligatory grey scale at art school I was captivated.  I had fabulous art teachers who encouraged me, taught me to ‘see’, to live dangerously when it came to colour choices and that nothing is precious until it is finished.

I still make mistakes but the making of these mistakes isn’t a negative.  Instead I see them as a continuation of the learning that began over 20 years ago.
