Inspiration for colour is everywhere.

In late January, when all the Christmas decorations are put away and there is only white snow outside, I look to add colour to my surroundings. I prune my forsythia bush and force the flowers by bringing the branches in and setting them in a warm place. The yellow colour of spring appears about 10 days later.

My children gave me some tulips.

The bouquet inspired me to make a quilt using my scraps of the same colours.

I always work on a vertical plane when designing. 

Look, really look. You will find beautiful colours everywhere...maybe in the oddest places!
