Artist - Tracey Halvorsen
Painting is my way of feeling and sharing the best parts of the human experience. The unexplainable, undeniable pull we have towards both creative expression and experiencing others' expressions. It opens doors in the mind and spirit that allow for a deeper connection with the universe.
(More information to come.)
Tracey Halvorsen began painting while in high school in Bethesda, Maryland. She went on to receive a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art (1993) (where she graduated with the school's top prize, the Agnes Gund Travelling Scholarship), and an MFA from Maryland Institute College of Art (1998). Halvorsen had a number of solo shows in Ohio, Maryland and in Del Ray Beach, Florida, where she was represented by the Carlynn Gallery.
As Halvorsen's paintings evolved so did her interest in applying creativity to other medium, including digital. As an emerging digital artist, Halvorsen's work won a prestigious Flash Forward Film Festival Award in Amsterdam (2001), and propelled her further into the digital space. An entrepreneur at heart, she started her own digital design agency, Fastspot, in 1999, and grew that company into an award winning nationally recognized agency over the next 20 years.
Halvorsen has returned to her true love, painting.
