About Tracy ....

Working in soft pastel, acrylic, oil and mixed media, Tracy uses a variety of genres as a springboard to express her ideas and philosophies.

To take the ordinary and turn it into the extraordinary adds dimension to the meaning, messages and commentary she presents.

By basing her compositions on shape; through the use of colour, tone and texture, she transforms the images into recognizable forms that create interest and are interpretative of the subject rather that being a realistic study.

In her imagery, Tracy creates narratives using metaphors and symbolism to provide an exploration to the interaction of relationships within humanity and the environment.
