A Splash of Colour Therapy – Silk, Dyes and Fun

I spent the last two days working on another couple of commissioned silk scarves and found myself really enjoying working with the vibrant colours. I was just thinking a few days ago how nice it would be to have my two different rainbow scarves side by side, when suddenly I got an order for one of each. Such a beautiful synchronicity. So I set about painting them in tandem, with the two frames set up at the same time, enjoying … Continue reading

Passionate About Silk and Art and Colour

Yesterday evening the setting sun was lighting the back wall in my bedroom up beautifully. I had hung one or two pieces of clothing against the cupboard door and noted how pretty the colours looked together. So I went up to the attic and got my camera down and started to take a few shots. These are some of the latest silks I’ve painted and I noticed what a predominance of pinks and oranges there is in my work at … Continue reading

Silk Painting as the Perfect Colour Therapy

I’ve always had a great love of colour and when I discovered silk painting, I found the perfect way to give myself a dose of colour therapy on a regular basis.

When the dye is still wet, the silk is almost outrageously vibrant, glistening and compelling … Continue reading

Can Colour Therapy Positively Affect the Chakras?

It’s been many years now since I completed my colour therapy training but all in all, colour was always a huge part of my life. In a way, doing the training was just formalising what I wanted to do, allowing me to take the certificate and get out there to share what I had learned with others. I can remember much earlier reading about how ancient cultures used their amazing knowledge of the healing properties of the various colours to … Continue reading

Colour Therapy Reflected in Business – Green as a Safe Option

I’ve been sharing a lot about the effect of various colours on both ourselves and those around us and thanks to Donna McCord (a woman in a man’s world) asking me about green on Twitter, I was prompted to publish this photo. It recently occurred to me that there was a fabulous example of this staring me in the face. There is a large building site directly across the road from us. A 3-storey building is being erected and it … Continue reading

Colour Therapy: wearing green clothing (Part 2)

I wrote a little while back about the significance of wearing green clothing and promised to get back with some further thoughts on the subject. Colour is such a fascinating subject isn’t it and I’m sure I could write a list as long as my arm of all the keywords linked with green but what I really wanted to do was give a bit more insight into how wearing this colour can affect your energy levels and what subtle effects … Continue reading
