Born in 1973 in Leigh Lancashire, England, Tracey showed a love of art and the outdoors from a young age. She spent most of her childhood exploring the natural beauty of the less urban areas of her life in a northern town. Tracey has a special connection in particular to the northern pit wastelands and reclaimed coal lands in her home town and the wider areas of the moorlands on the outskirts of her town. Tracey has spent many hours exploring these areas and capturing their unique beauty in her paintings.
For many years Tracey honed her skills as an artist painting wildlife and her attention to detail during this time developed her technique for applying paint. However, despite her skill in realistic representation Tracey began to enjoy working in a much freer, semi-abstract style when painting landscapes. She believes that this approach allows her to capture the essence of a place in a way a photorealistic representation cannot.
In her semi- abstract style Tracey uses bold brushstrokes and mark making and her signature colours to create an emotional response in the viewer. She believes that working in this way, she can capture the feeling of being in a landscape, rather than just the physical appearance of it.
Tracey's work has been exhibited at various galleries throughout the UK and is held in private collections around the country.
