Sea Soul
Mixed Media Art Inspired Near the Sea

Mary Tracy

Shorebirds and their habitats are what I love to create in a colorful whimsical manner. Well, pretty much anything by the sea inspires me. Sometimes combining watercolors or acrylics with bits of textiles creates layers of textures that can pull one into a bigger realm of meaningful art. Recycling  “bits” of single-use marketing collateral like bags, boxes, brochures (that originated from tree/plant pulp) feels “right” and warms my soul. Demised bits of nature get a brand new life.

Prior to retirement, I had many computer-related positions that involved creatively teaching adults.  My favorite employment, though, was 10 great years of creatively teaching/inspiring 2nd graders to be “visual” and full of wonderment.  Watercolor (with occasional mixed media) is my most recent creative pieces are added, as practice spurs quantity.  I paint in Malibu, Solana Beach and Morro Bay.  So keep checking back.

Pieces are unframed, so frames can be added as you wish.  Taxes/shipping not included.
