Tracy Rees Art

I paint in acrylics on board, and like to create dreamy, nostalgic, colourful scenes of mysterious cats, birds and quizzical dogs, often languorous greyhounds and naughty terriers with simultaneously funny and sad expressions.

I enjoy placing them in domestic situations, where guilty dogs sit on forbidden sofas, wait eagerly for the postman and dream of sunny excursions in bicycle baskets, while slinky cats with tiny-tiger attitudes, laze blissfully on rugs by the fireside, hunting butterflies that alight on old china teacups, and are tantalised by birds that sing from blossoming trees in enchanted gardens.

I live in Cornwall in England, with my husband Michael Rees who is also an artist and my studio is in the garden where my beloved cats once roamed happily amongst the birds and wildlife.

The beautiful Cornish landscape and coastal walks with my adorable Whippet give me inspiration as do animals, flowers, gardens, interiors, antiques and collected curios, paintings, old china and textiles.
