Hello, I am Phyllis Tracy and I live and paint in the beautiful Mount Washington Valley of Northern New Hampshire.
An artist all my life, I have used my artistic talent in all of my career choices. Graduating from Massachusetts College of Art with a BFA in Art Education and Painting, I began my journey as a public school Art Teacher.
I moved to the Rockies in Sun Valley, Idaho with my High School sweetheart ( soon to be husband) to ski and hike. There I found work as a picture framer for a local artist. The incredible beauty of remote hiking and back country skiing of Idaho gave inspiration to much of my painting. The White Mountains keeps that inspiration going.
A move back East to our hometown of Marblehead, MA to begin a family led to being a full time Mom of two energetic boys, which meant little time for painting. As soon as they were in school I developed my own company of Faux Finishing and Mural Painting for homes on the North Shore and Boston.MA. These opportunities exposed a need to provide Color Consultations for individuals struggling to find the perfect palette for their residences. In turn I took those skills to developed my current business of 20+ years, Phyllis Tracy Interiors.
Always looking for the Silver Lining, when CoVid created a hardship for going into peoples home and traveling for interior design, I decided to pivot my attention back to my fine art painting.
