Colour, from the beginning, has been my wonder, quest and illuminant. Painting, both creating it and studying the history of it, is how I bring these intense feelings about colour into the external world.
Colour is that wonderful, ever-changing, ephemeral element in our lives that is not fully understood. A universe without colour is, quite literally, unimaginable. It is crucial to our lives, in fact crucial to all beings, and often central to survival. Colour is a vital form of communication, for colour transmits messages more rapidly than any words. Colour is a language without barriers.
As an extension and further development of my connection to colour I created The Colour Potential Card Deck. The cards act as inner wayfinders, helping to navigate issues from seemingly small everyday dilemmas, to the more devastating life events.
