Tracy Butler
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
I was born in Glasgow and studied at both the Glasgow School of Art and Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design in London, graduating with an Honours Degree in 1990.

I work in oil, acrylic, chalk pastel and anything else that takes my fancy at the moment. I have had successful solo and joint exhibitions in London, Glasgow and at the Pittenweem Arts Festival and have commissioned work throughout the UK for private clients and companies, including Sun Microsystems and Butlins.

Now living in Glasgow, I have lived in both Canada and South Korea. I have worked for the Royal National Theatre in London and Edinburgh, and on the TV series, Outlander, currently in production for Starz - in the Breakdown and Dye department.

Lately, on top of my painting, I have had the pleasure of writing for EnvatoTuts, an online tutorial website.

You can buy originals and prints of my work on Etsy...
Interests

Lately, I have been deciding on the colours I want to use first before painting, and have been loving the results. Limiting my palette has had a very freeing effect on my work, allowing me to solely concentrate on what I am creating and not on what colours I’m going to be using as well. I’ve used a lot of water too which has dictated the shapes and patterns I have used as it flows and moves my paint into its own desired shapes.

I’m going to be exploring this method of painting more, not just because I like the paintings I am producing, but also because I am really enjoying myself.

Summer Wildflowers, along with In the Blue, Dancing and Swaying, and a few other wee paintings will be exhibited at Smithy Gallery in their Affordable Art Show from 24 June – 22 July 2018. The Private View is on Sunday 24 June, 2pm–5pm. You are more than welcome.

Happy Birthday! I doubt you remember me, but I still have the wonderful pic you sent me of Cassie (fox character) from a loooooong time ago! I have always followed your art and you have been one of my biggest inspirations in art. Thank you so much for being not just an awesome artist, but a super sweet and kind person! <3

20 years! You might be my oldest fan! I've got quite a lot of paintings on the way as I build up to a series of exhibitions and, of course, the end of the year; so keep watching this space.
