Watercolor artist Tracy Moad was born and raised in the town of Medford, Oregon, located in the southern part of the state. She now makes her home in Lake Oswego.
From the time she was a small child, given a giant piece of paper and some finger paints, she has always loved painting. That love continued to grow throughout her younger years and on into junior high and high school.
Light, color, and a sense of place, are all important aspects to Tracy, and she strives to achieve that in her landscapes, "I want people to feel a connection to a place, even if they have never actually been there, I want to take them to somewhere that feels peaceful, restful, a break from the hectic pace of everyday life. I love this quote from Picasso: "Art washes away from the soul the everyday dust of life." And so it does.
Her personal style has evolved over time, "As an artist I believe each painting or sketch I do is a creative process. I grow in my artistic ability each time I pick up a brush, pencil or pen to begin a new piece."
