Meet the Artist
My art is inspired by many life experiences and those I am still to have. I am stimulated by the variety of colors and see now that bright bold color brings me joy. I love the fluid movement of my work which becomes a "dance" with the canvas. I am always excited to see the end product of my painting. Many paintings become an associated with island life. When I begin a painting, I have no preconceived idea of what image will appear on my canvas as this develops through the process of flow, pallet knives, and brushes. I create my signature style layering colors using a variety of tools. I work with my canvas setting flat on a table so I can view it from all angles. The painting evolves with new colors or layers added to the canvas. I create artwork that grabs the viewer from across the room with its bright bold colors. Each painting is open to the viewer's introspection. The end result always creates an emotion of surprise and delight. People that see my art are moved by the fluid nature of my piece and bright colors. Many say it brightens their lives and home and often takes them back to the islands. Some of Tracey’s major artistic influences include Bette Ridgway and Caliche and Pao. She notes that “their color pallets greatly influenced my choices of color. Bright, wild, and exciting!” Viewers and collectors often comment that Tracey’s lively abstracts bring a smile to their faces and joy to their homes. Many have felt refreshed by the presence of island life and warmth in her paintings.
