“Anche l’occhio vuole la sua parte.”—Italian Proverb.
“The eye demands its share.”
Color is powerful and affects us deeply, especially the colors on the walls of our homes and workplaces.
As an award-winning visual artist and color consultant, I’ve had a long career in the visual arts. I work closely with you to create the feeling and look you desire for each space.
March 2020 –WE ARE WORKING THROUGH THE ZOOM VIDEO CONFERENCING PLATFORM UNTIL THE COAST IS CLEAR. I’ve worked on many projects over Skype and Zoom before the pandemic: houses and condos in Vermont, NYC, Seattle, Santa Fe, and San Francisco, and vacation homes in Florida and South Jersey. We love Zoom. It works and it’s easy.
The process of choosing color over a video screen is similar in many ways to an in-person, on-site meeting. For the process details, contact us here.
I ensure the palette of the entire house is balanced and all colors – walls, ceilings, woodwork – work together in harmony. It is important that the eye is happy and delighted. Visual stress is real and the goal is to eliminate it.
Beauty contributes to our sense of well-being.
I work with home owners, apartment dwellers, architects, professional designers and decorators who want an artist’s eye and color sensibility on deck.
Working with the sophisticated color palettes of Benjamin Moore Paint and Farrow & Ball, I’ve created personal color palettes for more than 800 interiors and exteriors.
