Life is the expression and fulfillment and celebration of beauty.

Welcome to Reveal Your Essence


Working with me is a journey to discovering your most authentic self. There will never be another YOU in all of eternity. How you dress and the way you decorate your home all say something about you.

As your guide on this path, I will help you discover YOUR own Style Essence so that you are in Harmony with this beautiful life you’ve been given.

I’ve been on a path of self-discovery for many years… sometimes I felt lost and out of step with who I was inside. I took many wrong turns and ran into a few roadblocks before I realized that I was searching outside of myself instead of looking within to my Core Essence. Once I saw how much richer and harmonious an authentic life was, I began learning everything I could to bring these four steps to you!

I’ve always said that Color is my Second Language! My love of color started as a young child living with an artist mom and a dad who owned a paint manufacturing business. I was surrounded by colors and I often experimented with various color combinations. My parents allowed me to paint and decorate my bedroom any way I wanted… this put me on the path to creativity and fearlessness around color and design.

I believe that each person has her own inherent beauty!

My desire is to help you see the Beauty that I see when I look at you and then show you how to express that Uniqueness to the world.

Being your true self instantly gives you more confidence! I’ve been drawn to personal style and color since I was young, but it wasn’t until I studied at Appearance Design Institute that I knew I had found my true passion. This became the next layer of work that I am called to do.

I began working in my family’s business in 1975 (thinking it was a temporary job) and ended up being there until I retired from that part of my life in 2010. During those years, I was able to help our clients find the perfect color palettes for their homes or offices. I listened to what they needed their rooms to “say” to them. I showed them how a color that looked wonderful in the light of day could become murky and drab in evening light… and then I showed them how to remedy that.

I see each woman I work with as a unique individual with her own beauty.

My job is to help you find your own Beautiful Essence and be the Expression of that Essence in your wardrobe, home and life.

I look forward to lovingly and compassionately show you the way home to yourself!
