To me colour is not merely a decorative medium. It is the element that transforms an architectural surface.
In one way, shape or form, I have spent my entire life working with colour. I studied fine arts, but soon realized I longed for a three dimensional surface to explore.
I then enrolled in Studio 58, the theatre training program at Langara College. My main focus was on set design (which gave me an understanding of how things change going from 2 to 3 dimensions) and scenic painting. What a life changing experience! I didn’t learn just the practical skills of a set designer. I learned how to listen, really listen, and how to collaborate. This diverse program also provided me with communication and presentation skills that I use to this day.
I spent several years as the in-house colour consultant for a local Farrow & Ball stockist, then ventured out on my own with K Colour.
While I draw upon skills acquired from the theatre and fine arts, the truth is that my approach to colour is highly intuitive. I know what’s current, but have no real interest in following the pack. Colour is an experience that is unique to each individual. I see my role as that of a guide. There to help lead my clients to the combination of colours that will bring joy and harmony into their lives.
