2019 Artist: Tracey Simmonds
"Sunflower," an alcohol ink by Tracey Simmonds. Tracey is joining our expanded panel of judges this year who help us determine the Artists and Student Artists awards.
"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. She shares her work at local art exhibits, and shares her techniques with workshop participants both locally and on the east coast. Her works are in private collections. She is a contributor to the e-book "Alcohol Ink: How It Is Done." Her studio is located in central Iowa."
Her work, her blog, and a list of her upcoming workshops are at adashofwhimsyart.wordpress.com.
