What is your favorite color?
Oh that is a hard question ... In my work, color is about mood and how
colors fit together for a specific project.
Personally, I love all earthy colors: greens, browns and oranges ...
but as time goes by I am very drawn to the serenity
of blues and aquas with a dash of red's vitality.
What is your favorite color combination?
there are so many ... there is always an adventure to see what will
actually be the right colors for a project... I start with a sense of
color but in the end they seem to come together as I work.
Which colors do you use most in your work?
I love working with colors drawn from old forgotten books, object made
by folk hands or from nature's changing palette of the seasons
