Tracy Lynn Davies (Owner)
Born and raised in Canada, Tracy has planted herself in beautiful Cornwall Ontario. She owns Cailuan Gallery and Studios located on the Main Street where she supports artists with classrooms, studio space and gallery shows. She works in acrylic, watercolour, mixed media, ink, encaustic and whatever else she can make a mess with!
Tracy started intuitive painting when she was 10 years old in Northern Ontario and had her first solo show at the young age of 12! And, she's been creating ever since. She loves lots of vibrant colours, drips, splatters and also more refined, precise still life work with inks and watercolour. She is interested in all things art.
Tracy finds that she has many colourful moods as an artist. Some days she will simply throw paint on the canvas and see where that will take her, working the piece until she is satisfied with what has been intuitively born before her. At other times she will painstakingly plan a piece and work to get exactly what she saw in her mind's eye.
The sky is the limit and…her sky comes in many colours!
