Hi! My name is Tracy, I'm a wife to an awesomely supportive husband and mom to the sweetest, funniest and very creative 9 year old son. I'm a Graphic Designer, Photographer and Avid Crafter, based in the beautiful little town of Hoedspruit Limpopo, South Africa.
My background in graphic design, photography, field guiding and environmental education makes my approach to art and crafting fresh, funky and environmentally conscious.
I create STEAM-based [Science . Technology . Engineering . Art . Maths] Craft Kits for children age 7 - 12 years old.
Craft Kits are available on order throughout South Africa.
On my journey I will be introducing Arts and Craft Classes in the town of Hoedspruit. The classes will be STEAM-based lesson plans, fun and interactive improving developmental and problem-solving skills. Crafters will leave at the end of a session with an art piece, toy or functional décor that they have proudly created!
“My passion for design goes back to memories of playing with clay and water colour paint lessons in my early primary school days, then loving high school art class and the Art Foundation in Saxonwold in the afternoons.“
My graphic design training began 27 years ago after high school, where I studied Graphic Design and Computer animation.
Many years spent practicing as a graphic designer have honed my skills and love of line, texture and colour, which I infuse into all my creative endeavors, including pottery, painting, dot art, photography and of course crafting with kids.
My passion for photography was a hobby started 25 years ago while working and residing in game reserves and capturing the wildlife and natural beauty of the South African bush. Now it's one of my life loves, along with art and of course my wonderful husband and gorgeous son.
I have a Diploma in Graphic Design and Professional Photography, Level 3 Field Guide and a passion for teaching children.
