Tracey Atkinson is a local artist who returned to live in Brisbane in 2015, after 4 years in Tampa, Florida. Living in the USA, Tracey was initially unable to work in her profession, so she seized the opportunity to explore her love of art. She
studied at Dunedin Fine Arts Centre in Florida, and attended classes and workshops in watercolour, watercolour pencil, drawing, acrylics, oil pastel, portraiture, en plein air, and ‘spinning’ with Robert Sutherland's Spin d'arte group.

As an active member of Spin d’Arte group, Tracey exhibited regularly in the Tampa Bay Area, principally in acrylic and watercolour. Tracey’s work was displayed at various venues, including;
  • ‘Currents’ Restaurant and Gallery, Tarpon Springs, 2013-2015, incl. her first solo art show in 2015
  • ‘Martinis and Matisse’, Clearwater Free Clinic fundraising art auction, 2014 & 2015, Clearwater (Invited artist)

Tracey’s art was recently displayed at Ashgrove Public Library, Royal Queensland Arts Society, and WSQ Autumn and Annual Exhibitions in 2016.

Landscapes, still life, travel experiences, negative painting, and ‘spinning’ inspire Tracey. Sketching is a favourite past time on her travels.

Tracey enjoys volunteering, motorcycling and traveling, with her husband, Jan, when she is not working and painting.
