ARTISTS / Tracey Lewis
Tracey Lewis spent her childhood living by the coast in S. Wales. She developed her painting skills initially in school and Ammanford College.
After moving to Canada, she was trained to paint using a unique style of stippling and blending oil paints whilst working for Adele Rootstein Inc. Painting realistic window display mannequins allowed her to travel across Canada where she continued to develop her interest in travel photography and evening classes in oil painting. Studying interior design for 3 years also developed an interest in architectural drawing and composition.
After 15 years, she returned home where she now paints in a variety of styles in mixed media but mostly working in acrylic on canvas.
She has produced large, semi-abstract paintings for commercial spaces, as well as a range of colourful seascapes, city and landscapes influenced by the urban and coastal communities she has lived in.
Never committing herself to one style, her work continues to evolve and change directions, seemingly with the wind, resulting in each piece evoking either a sense of wild chaos or serene reflection.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
