Tracy Marie Oliver
Art & Story

 media artist, writer and another unique version of you.

Beyond a playful exploration of color and texture, through my art, I work to communicate a vision of the divinity in us and around us. 


My style is art fusion, a mix of impressionism, abstract, fantasy and a hint of realism. Drawing on both personal and universal symbolism, I embrace the childlike and innocent in my paintings. Vintage glass glitters, natural crystals, and diamond glass embellishments create sparkle and iridescence to signify the miracle of life in the natural world. Unlike my written work, my visual art doesn't express a lot of shadow. 

I view the act of painting as a meditation or prayer during these pivotal times. Art is a powerful form of both communication and manifestation so I strive to create what I want to see in the world. Whether dealing with subjects like war…dwindling bee populations, or rising sea levels in an era of unpredictable change, I strive through my art to offer a shimmering celebration of community, hope, and endurance of the human spirit.
