I am an experimental painter. I love to find new and unusual ways to make my paintings unique. Acrylic paints and mediums allow me to paint in both water media techniques as well as traditional oil painting approaches. I am also enamored of encaustics. It is the perfect material for experimentation.
For me, cutting edge is creating new ways to assemble the visual. Paintings need to be about something. I feel strongly that creating a feeling of depth is important – both visual and of meaning. My paintings are built in layers of color, texture, images and mixed media when it supports my concept. But also layers to the imagery... painting fascinates me and I teach to share my love of self expression with these beautiful materials. See more at http://tracykayfraker.net.
