About

Hi there, I'm Tracy!

I am an artist who gets to live on a very beautiful island on the very west coast of a very big country.

and thankfully my husband and daughter also live here. SO convenient. :)

My painting style (so I've been told) is impressionist, with a hint of abstract. Always filled with beautiful colour, deep texture and usually focused on the simplicity of nature.

I paint in my studio which consists of my big wooden easel, my turquoise cart and my mason jars filled with many well used and well loved brushes. And by 'studio' I mean that bright corner in my kitchen where I paint... so simple.

I find inspiration in many different places. Definitely in nature, in beautiful colours, in clean lines and even in a big pan of nachos!  *insert tummy growl here

Here are a few other things I love spending time on:

Travelling - I've been to 16 countries so far and constantly making plans to add more to our list!

Photography - I spent a couple of years focusing on wedding photography but painting kept calling me back and eventually it got all my attention. Now, my favourite photography is done while travelling.

Minimalism - This is a big focus in our home now. Clearing out what's unwanted and unneeded is SO satisfying! It's a constant work in progress and we're truly enjoying the journey.

There is so much more to me than is listed here but I really don't want to put anyone to sleep with boring details. ~you're welcome.

If you have any questions about my art, my process or even what my favourite toppings on a pizza are, just ask!
