Mixed Media by Tracy Fox
I am a self taught artist and started painting 16 years ago after I had developed a serious illness which left me housebound for a while. I found it to be a wonderful therapy and have been painting and exhibiting ever since. I currently teach painting to the elderly in some of the residential homes in Torquay. I am constantly amazed at how well they paint and feel privileged to be able to help them do this.
I moved to Torquay from Oxford 4 years ago and unfortunately had to put my painting on hold. I have just recently completed a new collection of floral landscapes.
Mixed Media is my preferred medium to work with. I enjoy combining acrylics, watercolours, pastels and various gel mediums to explore the way they come together. I like how this medium illustrates movement and texture and consequently works particularly well when painting nature.
My preference is to paint on large canvases as I feel unrestricted. My goal for my paintings is to inspire those who see them to be inquisitive and feel a connection.
I like to paint Foxgloves as I feel they demonstrate the energy of plants . They play an important role in religion, mythology, remembrance and can be healing or deadly. I like to think that I have captured this bewitching energy in my Guardian Angels painting.
