Tracy Levine’s studio is based in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the village of Arnside. With easy access to Cumbria’s variety of Lakes, Mountains and coastline as well the Yorkshire Dales and further afield to her much loved favourite Scottish Western Isles, this location is the prefect base for her contemporary landscape painting. She constantly seeks out wild and remote unspoilt places for her inspiration.
Tracy works ‘en plein air’ for much of her smaller work and back in her studio, which has views of the Kent Estuary, for her larger mixed media paintings. Also a prolific printmaker, Tracy produces her monoprints from this perfect base.
Not all her work is inspired by the British Isles and Tracy often travels to France and Spain for a different light and palette.
With a full time program of exhibitions and an extensive list of solo shows behind her, Tracy has won several awards and prizes in recent years. This summer sees her long awaited Bright and Beautiful solo exhibition at Brantwood on the shores of Coniston. In 2016 she was elected a member of the prestigious Lake Artists Society. Also, in 2016 she was voted a very close runner up in the visitors choice for the Cumbrian Artist of the Year award at Rheged.
Tracy works in a variety of media so whilst working outdoors she travels with an extensive amount of materials. Sometimes these are transported by bicycle and trailer. Mixed media paintings may include acrylic, oils, pastels, graphite, inks and coloured pencils. Sometimes there is gold or silver leaf collaged into the work or even sand, leaves or anything that happens to be on the ground where she is painting.
New work, original prints, greeting cards and reproduction prints can be purchased from the studio .Reproduction prints can also be ordered online from her website. As well as being open during Open Studio weekends, Tracy will always welcome visitors to her studio by prior arrangement. www.tracylevine.co.uk
