I first gained an interest in the relevance of colour while completing a master’s degree in Photography. The degree led me to research our personal involvement with woodland, alongside an investigation into the significance of colour and light levels, in terms of our moods and feelings. I have continued to have a strong interest in the use of colour, exploring the use of plants and trees alongside colour and the positive effect it has on our health.
When it was pointed out to me, by somebody involved with complimentary healing, that the pictures I was producing had healing qualities, and should therefore be placed in healthcare and similar establishments, it made complete sense. I finally felt that I had found a strong pathway forward, and one that would allow me to bring positive thought and beauty into the lives of others, by means of my photography. Immediately I enrolled on the Colour Therapy course with the School of Natural Health Sciences, fine-tuning my knowledge and understanding of colour as a means of enhancing well-being.
Living on the edge of woodland, I am luckily able to build on my collection of images on a weekly basis, with the seasonal variations providing an endless arrangement of colours and shapes to choose from. Typically, my photography uses soft focus techniques to draw the viewer’s attention towards the colours. Subject matter will generally include plants or trees used for healing purposes now as in times gone by.
I work mostly by consultation, so that I can build up a clear understanding of what colours are going to be most suitable, alongside space and budget limitations.
My ‘Picture of Health’ images are ideal around the home to create a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Other areas where photographic artwork would be suitable include:
- Reception areas and waiting rooms
- Nursing and care homes
- Therapy centres
- Areas dedicated to peace and relaxation
- Health clubs and gyms
- Guest houses and hotels
- Staff rooms
Colour has a powerful influence on our emotional, mental and nervous activity. By introducing different colour elements around us we can balance energy and create a relaxed, harmonious atmosphere.
