“What I really, really want is to paint the world in rainbows of possibility” ~Tracy Verdugo
If Tracy Verdugo was given the opportunity to coin a term for a new art movement based around what she teaches she might call it “Curiosity and Wonderism” or maybe “Loosen-upism” or “Endless possibilityism”.
When she is not hanging out with her family in their artsy adobe home in a small village on the shores of Jervis Bay, Australia, or throwing paint around in her little purple studio in their backyard, you may find her wrangling with two large suitcases attempting to board the BART in San Francisco en route to teach at an art retreat or sitting in a circle on St Pete Beach Florida listening intently as women share their stories of creative longing.
Tracy is an inspiration instigator, prolific painter, singer/songwriter and lover of the written word, smitten traveller and soaker up of all that is beauty-full. She teaches her Paint Mojo and other creative workshops all over this amazing planet and reminds her students of the wonder that already resides within them.
Mostly though she is mama bear to two gorgeous, zest-filled daughters, Santana and Sienna, and co-adventurer in life with her amor of 28 years, the talented and brilliant Marco.
Since 2000 Tracy has held 16 solo exhibitions, been involved in numerous group shows and her works are held in collections across the globe. Her first book Paint Mojo- A Mixed Media Workshop: Creative Layering Techniques for Personal Expression will be released July 2014 through North Light Publications and is now available for preorder on Amazon
