Tracy: Prints & Paintings

A brief word about my subjects

  

Artist in search of a subject

Tracy takes inspiration for her work from anything that she finds beautiful, unusual and visually striking, especially the amazing places she and Krys have visited around the world - especially Antarctica and Iceland.


From an old photo of Irish fishermen in the 1930's, produce from her garden, or light falling through trees - it all goes into her portfolio.


Another great source of inspiration recently has been the zoos of Norfolk. The variety and charm of the animals has captivated her and she is currently producing work based on her impressions.

Drawing, drawing .......

  

Paintings and Pastels

Drawing was always Tracy’s first love. It is the foundation of all her work. Pastels enable her to work on a larger scale. She loves the textures she gets when using them over watercolour.


She draws from anything - life, photographs - sometimes in pen, sometimes with pencil. She will often draw with a biro, enjoying the danger of not being able to rub out mistakes.



...... and printing

  

Hand made prints

Tracy fell in love with the wonderful world of printmaking during her Foundation Year at Art College - from planning and creating the plates through to inking and printing. It can seem a laborious process, but the results are like nothing else.


She produces small editions of no more than 25, mainly because the collagraph plates wear down quickly under repeated pressure from the press rollers. She inks and cleans each plate by hand. Thus no two prints are exactly the same.


She calls her etching press Melrose, after it’s first owner.
