Whether making art, jewelry or designing fashion, I want to create movement, contrast, and balance. Before I pull out beads, paint and bolts of fabric I need to understand the language of color and employ the tools to help me use and mix different colors together. It all begins with the Color Wheel, an indispensable tool for me. These color-planning tools help me to choose great combinations for designing and piecing my textile art and wearable art.
This is a great way to find your personal palette for each project.
The color wheel defines a color palette that may extend throughout the year and cross over into other aspects of my life, in my fashion, my home interiors, my textile designs and my jewelry making.
Color is an element of design. There is much information to found about Color Theory; it is a life long journey. Below are color tools that I presently use.
