We are excited to introduce our newest artist to the gallery, Traci Owens. Traci lived and traveled around the world since she was a child and her experiences with different cultures on various continents has influenced her art. Her art is generally figurative and very expressive and spirited, guided by a theme or concept which inspires her personally. Her style is very artsy, sometimes even quirky.

Her process begins with intuitive and energetic scribing and mark making, followed by colorful pattern making.

Over this colorful background, she begins her drawing, informed by her concept, the background itself, and intuition.

In a short while, a figure emerges and details are determined and competently drawn. Parts of the initial color, patterns and scribing strategically remain visible.

In this introduction of Traci Owens, we present works from her newest “GULLable” series as well as two pieces from her previous, unshown “Gone Too Far” Postcard series.

“GULLable” series

“Gulls embody the spirit of freedom and independence outside of relationships. So, when the Gull Spirit Animal flies into your awareness, it might encourage you to take to wing by becoming self-sufficient. Gull reminds you of your uniqueness and that you can have your way of life without loneliness.” – Traci Owens

“Gone Too Far” Postcard Series

“Ummm, so many things have crossed the line in this world… but, as I strive to keep one foot grounded, sand between my toes, standing tall where I feel my bliss… I find the other foot suited up and wanting to run far from all that is… in search of… perhaps that which does not exist.” – Traci Owens
