“My painting is wonderful. It’s Good Old Scottish Folk cos I love them. I like all their faces—I want to show my paintings to people—I want them to see my work. It is very important. I feel wonderful when I have an exhibition.”

Tracy’s ‘scottish folk’ are direct—her style conveys complex often contradictory emotions. Vulnerable and resilient, they are celebratory of life.  Evocative of childhood, they hint at defiance and joy and her art is a place where loss and optimism co-exist. Her vibrant use of colour reinforces the sense of hope in her work.
