I work as an accountant, but in my free time I have explored various art mediums. I simply love art! Creating art, going to art shows, galleries and even talking about art brings me great joy. For the past several months I have been exploring & growing in surface pattern design. It is so thrilling to take art that I have created and put it on something tangible.

Tracey Simmonds creates alcohol ink paintings that juxtapose the loose flowing nature of this medium against controlled detail work to transport the viewer into the painting.
