by Tracie Lyn Huskamp
"It wasn't until Tracie signed-up for an outdoor painting class in the summer of her sophomore year of art school that she discovered Nature as an unending source of inspiration. Tracie Lyn Huskamp holds a B.F.A in graphic design and fine art from Wichita State University and a BS in computer science from the University of Missouri-Columbia. For over seven years, she worked as product designer and illustrator creating garden products.
In 2007 she left her corporate position to focus full time on her own art. It is Tracie's passion for mixed media, painting, and nature that fuels the fires of her creative spirit and continues to lead her on a wondrous journey. She shares her love of art and nature by teaching workshops at some of the most prestigious national and international retreats and conferences and with the release of her new book, Nature Inspired.
Tracie's premier quilting collection is released simultaneously with the publication of her book of the same name. Not surprisingly, Tracie has captured the vivid glory of nature on fabric as she has done in her expressions of mixed media.
