I am Tracy Nuskey Dodson, mother of two boys, wife of one man,
and maker of contemporary folk art.
Art has always been a huge part of my life.
I began my art "career" in the living room of my childhood home with a stack
of coloring books and a cigar box full of crayons.
I took every art class that was offered in school and I attended
a vocational high school to attend the commercial art course.
After I graduated from Hussian School of Art in Philadelphia, I jumped around
the commercial art and advertising field for a bit until I realized that it wasn't for me.
Art had lost it's fun and I had lost my spark, so I packed up my paints and brushes and got an office job.
I enjoyed my job but spent countless hours dreaming of all of the creative things I wanted to do.
After the birth of my second son, my husband and I decided that I would quit my office job and be a stay at home mom. It was this time that I was able to pick up my brushes and start painting again.
I got my spark back!
I now spend my days taking care of my family and creating art in my home studio,
formerly our dining room.
I have learned over the years to try and avoid the trends and just create from the heart.
My style reflects my love of portraits, children, birds, cats, and all things vintage.
Oh, and polka dots! I love polka dots!!
