Practicing professional artist, based in Perth, Western Australia.
Tracey is known as an artist with a social conscience and for her vibrant paintings, which involve a complexity of built up layers, strong colour, and texture. She has exhibited internationally since 2008, is the recipient of several awards, and her paintings are held in numerous private collections in Australia, Singapore, Italy, France, UK and USA.
“My great source of inspiration is the wide and colourful Australian landscape, as well as the small details of texture, shape and colour that exist around us, but are rarely noticed. Since 2013, I’ve focused on abstract painting and bodies of work that are further inspired by my travels and interest in medical science.
As a qualified physiotherapist I have always had a passion for the intersection of art, science and health, as well as exploring the world through travel, photography and meeting a diversity of people. I don’t believe in painting just for art’s sake or my own, I am an artist with a social conscience. My works draw on my aim to raise awareness of the frailty of the human condition and sales support charitable organisations (Heart Foundation, The Hunger Project & Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation).”
Technique & Medium
“I love oils for their buttery fluidity and intensity of colour, and acrylics for the expressive speed they permit. People choose my work because they enjoy, not only the evocative aesthetics, but my use of the brush and palette, which is quite vigorous and expressive. This allows me to extract as much movement of the medium as possible.”
