About Traci

I am creative and artistic; my talents started at a very young age, dabbling in every field of the arts until finding my love of drawing. One of my first drawings was of a famous mouse named Mickey. Ever since then I have has been inspired by classic Disney films and illustrations such as Mel Shaw's beautiful pastel and pencil renditions of "Fantasia."

My work is styled towards a younger crowd, bringing in a sense of soft colors and playful imagery that make for endearing and child friendly illustration.

With a Bachelor's degree in Illustration, I am equipped with the knowledge and experience of working with strict deadlines, collaborations on projects, and understanding type and layout formats.

I am not only a freelance illustrator, but also a certified art teacher trying to pursue her dreams of publishing my first children's book by the age of twenty-eight, and inspire the next generation of young artists.

Drawing

While attending the University of the Arts earning a degree in Illustrations I have learned how to enhance my drawing skills and develop my own illustrative style. I have taken many classes in drawing, figure drawing, and figurative communication.

Graphic Design

I have studied and taken the required course work while attending college in order to do graphic design. I have also freelanced for the Garden State Harmonic Club creating the graphics for their shirts and newsletter. As a graphic designer I am knowledgeable in adobe illustrator when it comes to layout, the pen tool, and turning hand lettering and graphics into digital paths.

Painting

While attending the University of the Arts I studied a variety of different mediums both dry and wet. I use acrylic and water colors on a daily basis but am also equipped with the knowledge of oil paint as well as digital painting. I was also commissioned to create three paintings for an app.
