If this is the first time we’ve met, hello! I’m Karen Haller and to say that I love colour would be an understatement. It happily consumes my every waking moment and often flows into my dreams. Like a stick of Brighton rock, if you were to snap me, you’d seen a rainbow of colours running through me.
I’ve loved colour since I was a little girl. I can still vividly remember a time in kindergarten when I was sitting in front of pots of paint and crayons and being beyond excited because I had all of these colours to play with. My biggest challenge was deciding which colours to use first!
From that moment I was hooked – and ever since it’s felt like I’ve had colour in my veins.
“For me, working with colour is a magical process. It is about taking the personality of an individual or a business, and drawing out the colours that represent their true identity. I feel blessed to be doing something I truly love.”
I’ve been learning, studying, researching colour for over 20 years and 10 years ago I decided to give up my corporate Project Manager/Business Analysis career and dive deep into the fascinating world of Applied Colour Psychology.
The fascinating world of colour
Over the past decade I’ve been sharing about colour the three things I find endlessly fascinating about colour and what people find most surprising is its ability to influence how we think, how we feel and the choices that we make – in an instant.
Starting a Colour Revolution
I’ve been spreading the message of the power of colour for over a decade now and this book is my way of getting into your hands exactly how you can use the power of colour psychology to transform your life.
With this book my vision is to help you and the world fall back in love with colour again. I want you to know you can’t get it wrong and that colour is there for you to play with and enjoy.
With this book my mission is to show how you can use colour to express who you are and how you are feeling so you can experience a greater sense of authentic self and wellbeing.
With this book my wish for you is to celebrate the joy, fun and happiness that colour brings into every moment of our lives and use it to have more fun and feel more alive.
