Artist, Tracy Kobus is fascinated by the interrelationship of humans and the natural world and believes that the landscape can serve as a powerful metaphor for aspects of our life’s journey. In her recognizable and vibrant painting style, Tracy’s paintings are loosely referenced from places she has explored, mostly in her home environment, Vancouver Island. Whether it’s a blue lake beckoning for a paddle, a mountain bike ride through a dark forest or a living room set outside in the mountains, she creates dynamic and accessible scenes that cause the viewer to consider how nature and our inner worlds are connected. Tracy has been working as an artist and drawing teacher in the Comox Valley for twenty years. She sells her work and reproductions at gift shops and online. Tracy also often donates pieces to support local causes such as the Transition Society, Habitat for Humanity or YANA.
