Color planning brings value to your building project and overall real estate investment with strategies to: 

  • create beautiful, healthy, uplifting environments 
  • address problem areas, define color options, streamline selection processes
  • enhance spatial perception and design, augment natural light and visual flow
  • re-purpose materials and prioritize elements of color, light, finishes, artwork
  • help communicate with contractors, coach site-work, optimize craftsmanship
  • reduce waste of labor, paint and materials


"My intuitive skill as a painter enables me to work with color to alter the experience of space. On canvas, I use color to create three dimensional illusions; in the built environment, it is used to push and pull architectural elements into view, shaping the experience of interior and exterior spaces for the user. 

With a combination of creative site-specific strategies, I can help my clients realize their vision by solving functional issues and prioritizing the optical impact of color, light, materials and finishes for their residential or commercial projects."
