Video: The Colourful Personality - Jane Lockhart



As an interior designer, Jane Lockhart understands that colour motivates what people buy and how they live. As the host of Colour Confidential on the W Network she is able to share her knowledge and fascination with colour.

“I enjoy teaching, so the more I can help people understand how to choose colour or how to design or how to make their life better at very little expense, that is something that matters to me,” she says.

Her love for art, colour and design were nourished as a student at Branksome Hall, in Toronto, Ontario. Her art teacher, Mary Simpson, was very culturally oriented and would step outside the boundaries of the basic art curriculum, often bringing guest artists in to provide exposure to the larger art world.

“My interests in things like colour, drawing and design all definitely came from Branksome,” says Lockhart.

“Branksome supported me at a time where I didn’t have a lot of confidence about the arts, and they helped me make a career out of it.”

Lockhart has travelled across Canada and the United States for more than 10 years presenting her Colour Foundations seminar. She also consults with individuals and corporations regarding colour and design through her company Jane Lockhart Design Communications Inc.

“I think it is important that education isn’t just about learning your time tables, it is about learning about the world and how the world operates.”
