Hey creative friend! I’m Traci artist, designer, author and educator.

Through the years, I have developed a go-to CREATIVE PROCESS & and framework that has been the foundation of how I approach making art, creating my limited edition handcrafted watercolor collections, and designing products. I’m excited to share a peek into this blueprint and inside my PLAY collective membership!

Over the past two decades, I have taught tens of thousands of artists and creatives. I encourage students to “see things differently,” to let go and face the blank canvas boldly with freedom. 

Let me be your guide on this creative journey.

in 2022, I celebrated 20 years as a creative entrepreneur taking the BOLD leap to leave Silicon Valley and go out on my own as an independent artist. It has led to designing a number of successful products, courses, and books.

I have written THREE best-selling mixed media instruction books. I'm excited to share a peek inside my creative practice and process as I give you a PLAYbook to create your very own INSPIRATION SKETCHBOOK and use the digital canvas as you paint your next body of artwork!

You are a beautiful creative soul.💗 xo~Traci
