Color Consultant and Designer
In 8th grade I was asked, as a candidate for the
class president, what I truly hated. My response
was "orange and pink together". I have always
been drawn to color.
After graduating from college I worked at McLean
Mental hospital and learned how powerful color
can be to damaged psyches. I taught ceramics
at Northfield-Mt. Herman prep school where
learned about the chemistry of color pigments
when subjected to high temperatures. I taught
art at public and private schools for about 20
years but I was always intrigued with color and
how it works.
