About Tracy Metcalfe

Ever since leaving primary teaching in 2014, I have began to focus on my own creative visual practice. My work has taken me on many adventures in drawing and painting, print making and book art. Along the way, I have led courses and workshops in these areas and in Art History and have met many wonderful people from all walks of life. I have produced work for two exhibitions and sold prints and handmade sketchbooks and notebooks. It has lead me to create this website and in 2018 I am hoping to open a shop and begin writing a book which I am giving myself two years to do.

The best thing about my way of working, is that I spend far more time now outside, in the surrounding environment of the Solway landscape, noting down the seasonal changes, the light, the activities of farmers working the land and the wheel of time. It is both inspiring, uplifting and an opportunity to learn about Place and myself. I hope, in my work, I can bring this sense of special magic to you.

Where it all began...

I'm from Lincolnshire originally...
