Color has been around me all my life. I have felt it and my art comes from those feeling – from my appreciation of the intensity of color and the emotionally uplifting effect their brightness radiates.
So, why is it that color, my essential fuel – carbonless, reliable, ever-renewable and naturally abundant – stokes my energy and makes me tick? Colors, with their many luminous and scintillating hues, are invigorating, restorative and exhilarating. Colors are healing. They are also mood-enhancers and much-needed antidotes to melancholy. With their contrasts, dynamism, unity, repose and tranquility, colors can complement and awaken the emotional potential that dwells within us. I choose to dwell in a world of colors. They envelope my surroundings and inform my creative output. Why not invite an abundance of color into your life as well?
