About the Book
Design, art and craft educators and students will find this book an invaluable historical reference of the unique colour course that the brilliant English educator, designer and artist Phyllis Shillito taught at her own school and at ESTC, now the National Art School (1925 – 1960) in Sydney.
It includes strategies for understanding colour organisation, colour mixing, colour planning and application to whatever design or art endeavour you choose.
Award winning colour designer, educator and artist Eva Fay started her career in ceramics and weaving large textural wall hangings after studying art in Florence and Mexico. Attending the Shillito Design School was the perfect basis to commence her foray into colour and design education at the tertiary level in the departments of fine art, interior design, graphic design and architecture. In 1983, she co-founded the acclaimed School of Colour and Design in Sydney. Later, Eva established her architectural colour consultancy business Eva Fay Colour Design and together with her team she coloured many a building throughout eastern Australia. In 1992 Eva won the National Dulux Australia Colour Award for excellence in architectural colour design. In 1986 Eva was a founding member of the Colour Society of Australia and in 2000 she was awarded Honorary Life Membership. She became a Fellow of the Design Institute of Australia in 2012. Today, Eva enjoys experimenting with colour in painting.
