A Passion for Nature

14th October 2017 - 19th November 2017


Description

Tracey-Ann Sitch is an artist with a passion for wildlife, who has painted natural history subjects for as long as she can remember.

Originally for London, she gained a degree in Zoology at Nottingham University in the 1980’s and subsequently worked as a commercial artist and illustrator, and a freelance paint-and-trace artist in the animation industry. During this time she continued to exhibit paintings in London and Hampshire.

Tracey-Ann moved to Wales with her husband and family in 1999, and after a career break to raise two sons to school age, she has resumed painting, and, increasingly finding inspiration in the wildlife and landscapes of the beautiful Usk Valley, is currently exhibiting in several local galleries as well as in wildlife exhibitions nationally.

“I have two great passions in life - natural history and painting, and am very fortunate in being able to combine the two; working in that most beautiful, unpredictable medium, watercolour.  Beyond the enjoyment I gain for myself I hope my paintings bring pleasure to those who already enjoy nature,  and may possibly inspire others to take more interest in our glorious natural heritage, to seek it out, join their local wildlife group, in short, to give our flora and fauna the support it needs today.”

“The paintings in this exhibition vary in style, I sometimes paint wildlife as a straightforward ‘portrait’; in a more elaborate illustrative ‘frame-breaking’ style (in part inspired by the arts-and-crafts movement); and in what I call my ‘specimen box’ style, which reflects my love of museum collections but with a difference, the ‘specimens’ are depicted alive!”  Tracey-Anne Sitch 2017
