NANCY-JANE PRICE’s first passionate encounter with colour occurred in kindergarten. She was to fill in a single pane of a stained glass window design on brown paper. She chose the MOST BEAUTIFUL shade of magenta her young eyes had ever seen, carefully filling in the space –boy, the teacher would be SO pleased! –NOT. When she noticed that Nancy-Jane hadn’t started at the bottom, she was summarily removed from painting duties. The memory runs deep. She continued her love affair with colour in public school and colour has stayed with her since, mostly through dress and home decoration.
