Interview with Artist Debbie Tracey
Painting in an Island Mood
Debbie Tracey works with acrylic paint and mediums. She also dances with her canvases and coaxes her colorful island-inspired art to come forth. Having grown up on Kauai and now from her Puget Sound studio, she combines forces… with bright island color, fluid movement and natural beauty.
“In the beginning I have no preconceived ideas of what images will appear. Through my process of flow, brush and palette-knife work I create my signature style. I love layering bright colors with gloss medium. I layer the fluid through a process of pouring paint onto my canvas and then moving it with a variety of tools. Often I work on a flat table surface where I can view my canvas from all angles. The end result always creates an emotion of surprise.”
