After 20 years as a producer, Amy's interest turned to floral and landscape design. Using nature as her medium and fascinated by the interplay between color, light and form she mastered these crafts supplying floral arrangements for film shoots. Recognizing that color was at the core of her connection to the botanical world she redirected her focus. This led to a formalized education in the art and science of color. Trained by the IACC-NA , The International Association of Color Consultants and Designers of North America (the world’s foremost color education and accreditation organization) Amy combines the science of applied color theory with her artistic sensibility, a background in art and business and the understanding that color has profound emotional, psychological and physiological affects on us all. A design blogger sought by national media outlets as a color expert, Amy has been published in Elle Decor, Houzz, Consumer Reports, Domino and The Today Show to name a few. She offers professional color-centric insight with a fresh voice on her blog amykranecolor.com/blog.
