I love colour.
My passion for colour was initially nurtured in the fashion industry. Since 1989 my work as a colour and design consultant has concentrated mainly on providing interior and exterior colour solutions for buildings. Of special interest is my art making, and collaborative work with highly regarded Auckland architects and interior designers.
Commercial projects have included a dental surgery, private hospital, schools, retirement villages, churches, community centres, medical centres, cafes, a coffee roaster, restaurants, nightclubs, shop interiors, offices, factories, residential housing projects, and forecasting colour ranges for New Zealand manufacturers.
Numerous residential projects have provided me with the opportunity to help more people love the houses they live in. I specify paint colours, surfaces such as flooring materials, kitchen cabinetry, furnishing textiles, wallpaper, and if requested, furniture, accessories and lighting.
I use colour as a device to enhance or correct architectural details, and select colours and combinations to transform people’s moods and lift their spirits. My approach is instinctive, backed by a wealth of experience.
