Read on to learn more about Tracey Woods.

Tracey, How Did You Develop Your Style?

My style is an ongoing evolution. While I enjoy realistic portraits, I also love an impressionist approach with palette knife accents, with lots of movement and texture. Lately I have dabbled in a more adventurous approach to portraiture too.
