Alcohol Inks Artist
Tracey works from her garden studio in Surrey. Her inspiration and love of natures’ colour and patterns are clearly evident in all her work. She often photographs flower petals and is particularly interested in the tiny details that often go unnoticed.
As well as painting with acrylic, in recent years Tracey has developed a passion for working with alcohol ink; the vibrancy of the highly pigmented ink and the way it moves and creates different tones when mixed with the alcohol is quite mesmerising to see.
Working usually without brushes, manipulating the inks using only a straw, she creates fluid shapes which have many intricate layers often giving the appearance of a delicate, chiffon like quality. Tracey often adds metallic ink to highlight the details and bring the work even more alive.
‘Before I begin any new piece, I have an image in my mind that I would like to create and the feelings I want to capture; whether that be calming, warm and secure or more vibrant and energising. Inspiration always stems from nature; flowers, the sea and sky, which I find almost magical. My pieces don’t always end up as I first imagine but evolve as I’m working (that’s the best part) I hope they give you as much pleasure and joy to view as they do me when I create them’.
