artworks by  Tracy Levine

Tracy Levine is a painter and printmaker who works from her studio in the South Lakes, Cumbria. Her studio is located in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty of Arnside and Silverdale with stunning views over the Kent Estuary. Thus this wonderful landscape of South Lakeland has proved to be the perfect source of inspiration for her work.     

Her work is widely exhibited in galleries around the UK and she has won several prizes and awards including first prize in the Cumbria Open and the prestigious Lake Artists Society Peter Tyson painting award.

Tracy's contemporary paintings capture the spirit of the landscapes that inspire her. Her feelings and awareness of an environment are portrayed on canvas in work that expresses a strong connection and sense of place.
The subjects are mostly places that she knows well or visits often and include coast, woodland, fells and rivers. The intensity of observation, through painting and drawing in situ,are captured in the ensuing studio work.  

 Tracy embraces an extensive variety of media  in her paintings, sometimes including collaged materials. Her printmaking combines original monoprinting techniques with painterly elements. The resulting work reflects a distinctively individual style of intuitive semi-abstract  work.
