Tracey Thornton was born and raised in greater London and now lives with her husband and two, young sons and Leo-the-cat in Surrey. Tracey's home studio means that she is never far from her work and with two young boys and their feline companion around to 'help', there is always something creative happening.
Tracey's family inspire and motivate her to capture moments of sheer joy, that many will relate to, such as: messing about in a meadow in "Butterfly Storm"; or playing hide and seek in a bluebell wood in "Silver and Blue".
Tracey works predominantly in acrylic, collage and mixed-media in a vibrant, contemporary style and donates a percentage of the value of each piece of original artwork sold to charity, calling it, "feel good art in every way".
Current Collection: Butterfly Series
Tracey's Butterfly Series in mixed-media adopts 3-D and 2-D butterflies to beautifully represent scenarios, emotions, senses or actions whilst bringing additional movement to this distinctive collection. Pieces include landscapes and abstract work in "First Flight" and embrace colour in a liberated style, rewarding the viewer with a sense of well being.
Tracey is a resident artist with Flat Space Art and her work is also available on gallery-curated sites such as "1st Dibs", "Artsy", "Art Net" and "The List" as well as "Saatchi Art".
Tracey exhibits when her work schedule allows and enjoys exploring collaborative opportunities.
Locally, Tracey first exhibited pieces from her Butterfly series at The Art Agency in Esher. More recently, Tracey's artwork was used to promote The New Artist Fair 2017 which attracted over 6000 visitors to the Old Truman Brewery in London's E1 art district.
