You know the theory that whatever we enjoyed in childhood we should make into our career? Well what I most enjoyed in childhood was looking – looking at patterns, looking at reflections, but mostly looking at colours. Just sitting and staring at colours.
Now I am in my 50s and colour remains my overriding focus (family aside) and fascination. I marvel at how the world uses colour and how the individual reacts to it. I paint abstracts flowing with colour and write about the emotional impact of colour.
And so this blog is about colour – how we use it to decorate, attract, advertise, impress, control, communicate, warn, repel, govern, revolt, ostracise, raise awareness, signal allegiance, commemorate and celebrate.
