Hi there! 

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 based in the beautiful tourist town of Hoedspruit Limpopo, South Africa.

 “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. 

 As a nature enthusiast, ex-field guide and environmental educator, my approach to art and crafting is fresh, funky and environmentally conscious.
