Ink Brush Work

Inspired by her travels in Asia and a course on black ink brush painting in Thailand, Tracy began developing her own style of collage using black ink brush strokes with liquified acrylic orbs. She uses handmade paper from Thailand and developed both scroll like presentations and framed floating work in shadow boxed frames. Tracy also pursued a line of animal forms using a few strokes as possible to render the animal form. Check out the the two-stroke bear or the one stroke geckos.
