Palette: a perfectly mysterious word which represents that magic place where colours meet and alchemize into other colours and tonalities. True shape-shifters in every sense of the concept! A thought comes to mind: Palette just may be the heartbeat of all creative and artistic expressions. Life sustaining energy made visible.

Colour affects our emotions, our moods, our spiritual awareness, our eating habits, our work habits, our sleep habits, our romance, our attention span, our grief and, joy of joys, our happiness and contentment. We are truly creatures of the light and the shadows and every shade in between.

Even after many years in the design biz (too many to reveal), I still remain in awe of the power and energetic life force of a colour palette. If I’ve learned anything at all about the power of palette, like energy and light, it is alive, fickle, and can be maddeningly unpredictable or breathtakingly gorgeous.

To realize how much a palette really does affect what we do and how we live can be somewhat daunting. Artists, designers, psychologists and other professionals are really still ‘babes in the woods’ - only scratching the surface of this vast creative, artistic and scientific realm….kinda’ like quantum physics in a Crayola box!
