“My favorite color used to be yellow when I was very, very little. I had yellow EVERYTHING! Yellow room, bedspread, furniture, clothes, you name it. Every birthday my mom would buy me yellow flowers because I loved them so much. I especially loved sunflowers and always wanted to try to grow some in our backyard. I always thought that my taste in color was unique and others did too! When I got older… my taste in color changed ever so dramatically…
For whatever reason, I became obsessed with everything pink! Pink clothes, pink room, pink walls, pink furniture, pink rug, pink sheets, pink everything. This surprised my parents because growing up, I wasn’t a very ‘girly girl’. God only knows why I loved pink then, because I certainly didn’t when I was younger! I didn’t like the idea of wearing makeup or girly clothing until I got a little bit older, and even then I still wasn’t really 100% into it. A big part of me held onto the idea of having a pink room for so long because of my mom’s battle with breast cancer when I was a teenager (she’s fine now!).
Then as I continued to grow, my taste in color changed again…
Huzzah! Purple! Purple, violet, indigo, lavender, lilac… I LOVE purple. Before I moved to where I am now, my parents and I purple-fied my room. It was more subtle than any of my other past room decor. In fact, my old room is still purple, with a few slight changes that have been added to it. My current home has a lot of purple and black furniture.
Overall as an artist, I enjoy using cooler colors and shades more so than using warmer colors and hues. It truly doesn’t matter what medium I use, I’ll always choose cooler colors over warmer colors.”
