Photographer, Ceramicist, Visual Artist
Art is a place that I go to find sanity and joy. My recent adventure has been working with clay. Painting on it and carving designs, hands on sensory experience, imagining what colors and textures feel right. What excites me is that the possibilities of what you can create are endless. I love to play in the mud! Photography allows me to capture art and the designs that are all around me with the magical touch of one finger.
I am an explorer. Searching for a medium a form, material, color and a place to bring and share my discoveries. https://www.tracyplatero.com/
I am an experienced fashion designer who creates original, artistic, one of a kind pieces of art to wear, and accessories, under the F.A.I.T.H. Designs Inc label.
