“Colour analysis is rewarding to me in so many ways. I love to see people take back control of their appearance, and make their own best choices in shopping. Being self-sufficient and successful in my shopping has been invaluable to me, and my gratitude for that never fades.”
Personal colour analysis
“People come out feeling incredibly special and beautiful after time with you.”
These words were written by a client who has participated in the colour analysis of friends and family members, as well as her own. I feel privileged to teach clients and students to see our world and ourselves with new and appreciative eyes through the PCA experience. I am especially honoured by the perfect accuracy of with which she expressed my ultimate wish.
Most businesses offering a product or service may be familiar with the process of bringing their perception of the product and their clients’ onto parallel paths. This is a long and introspective process. In April 2019, I will have been a colour analyst for a decade, the time it took to understand at a profound level how colour analysis improves the lives of those who give themselves the experience.
Since there is no receiving without giving, as the client, your once-upon-a-time might start off sounding like this:
Once we are determined to filter the noise surrounding appearance,
Once we release the notion that we should be able to choose colour on our own,
Once we perceive appearance as communication of who we were meant to be,
Once we allow ourselves to seek a trusted advisor with a remarkable tool kit,
The person who leaves the session is different from the one who arrived. The spark of curiosity has been awakened, along with the optimism that comes of having a plan and a strategy. I feel the same excitement as the client, of knowing that these will evolve freely in the complete acceptance and satisfaction with who they are, often for the first time in their lives, like a rebirth. This individual is prepared to explore from a new vantage point, knows how to pay attention to the right things, and has reclaimed ownership of their appearance. I am humbled to play a part in this empowerment. The pictures soon arrive, of the new hair colour, shopping finds, or perfect lipsticks, and they’re always great to see; the joy in the smile and twinkle in the eyes are even better.
To pave the way from colour palette theory to real-world success, I use various approaches to help people visualize their colours and how to use them. These ideas find their way to my website, where you’ll also find a shop with the book, Return to Your Natural Colours, and Cosmetics and Accessories for the 12 Seasons. Pinterest galleries are invaluable to illustrate items from fashion, for the inspired translation of coloured ink on canvas into textile and design, and items from current retail to help recognize colours in stores and on websites.
I enjoy the technical side of PCA as much as the practice, and spend much of my time writing and creating, improving the many building blocks in the system, and developing new resources for analysts and their clients. I’ve dedicated years to elevating every aspect of PCA to be the best that it can be.
Teaching colour analysis to entrepreneurs may be my favourite activity of all. Sharing our skills allows me to attract people who let us grow and learn together. Our students have given me exactly that. I never tire of working with people who are committed to helping others discover their natural colours. It’s a great pleasure to see them build successful businesses that enrich their lives.
