Color has always been important in my work - whether it was creating and selling paintings, drawings, textiles, glass work, painting designs for a fabric studio or photographing in 30 countries.

I can easily "see" how a room or a building would look painted in a different color, or shades of different colors, and how other colors would work in a combination. My goal as a color consultant is to teach you how to see it and visualize the possibilities. A client recently called to thank me for our "creative collaboration" and I liked the phrase so much I put it in my brochure. Every project taken is treated individually and personally, resulting in a unique palette and environment every time. I enjoy the process very much, and I know you will too.

My portfolio photographs shown on my website are selected from jobs I've done over the years. Color trends come and go. They have changed from earth tones to bold colors to cool clean colors to the ever-popular neutrals and whites - from many bright colors to monochromatic schemes. I love them all and urge my clients to choose what suits them individually rather than go by the latest trend.


I have successfully collaborated with homeowners, architects, contractors and designers for over 25 years. I have been involved in remodels, new construction and restorations. I have also been a painting contractor, although I no longer paint. My extensive artistic experience includes surface design, decorative finishing, graphic design, and fine arts. I earned an A. A. S. from the College of Art and Design at Rochester Institute of Technology, and a B. F. A. from the State University of New York.


I work all over the San Francisco Bay Area: Berkeley, Oakland, Emeryville, Albany, El Cerrito, Alameda, San Leandro, Hercules, Richmond, Martinez, Montclair, Orinda, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Alamo. I also travel to San Francisco, Marin, Palo Alto and beyond for an additional fee.

My hourly consultations include paint selection for interior and exterior color schemes for both residential and commercial projects. I also offer architectural support services, remodeling advice, interior decorating, room redesign and hanging art work. For a complete list of services see my home page. Please call my office for a project estimate and if you have any questions. 510-524-1726
