Tracey Mackie is based in Lyndhurst in the Central West of NSW, where she also has her studio. She has a big open window where she paints, where she can look out and gaze at beautiful trees, farmland, and the many visitors that come to peek in, whether it be pet sheep, the chooks, or even the blue-tongue lizard that found her interesting once! The human kind make an appearance too!
Her art is bright, loud, colourful and quirky! Her art doesnt take life too seriously and it is there to make you feel good, and walk away smiling!
Tracey predominantly paints rural art because growing up a farmers daughter (and by farmers she means Mum and Dad!), she’s always been surrounded by animals of all kinds (even pet emus hatched from eggs who were quickly dispatched outside when one of them snatched her father’s toast out of his hand one morning!). Besides her own small menagerie at home now, she’s still lucky to be surrounded by farmland with animals of all kinds! She also enjoys painting the many domestic pets that have become beloved fur babies in their family homes! She loves to give them personality in their paintings!
Tracey primarily uses acrylic and ink in her art. She loves nothing more than heading out to her studio and putting on her music and getting her paint on! Each piece is created in such a happy place and she aims to spread that feeling when her art moves on to its home!
Tracey has work now in quite a few parts of the world and in every state in Australia. She was also the feature artist at the Australian National Field Days in 2016.
