About the Artist:
Growing up in Melbourne, Australia, Traci studied Interior Design, graduating in 1977. She worked for the Art & Design, Textile Craft and Art & Craft Departments at Melbourne State College before pursuing an Associate Diploma of Visual Arts in 1995.
Living on an isolated bush block in the mountains neighbouring the Snowy River National Park in far East Gippsland, Traci was inspired by the abundant wildlife and developed a passion for painting, exhibiting her Wildlife Art from 1989.
Holding 2 solo exhibitions & participating in many group exhibitions, she was also represented in many regional and Metropolitan Galleries. Her paintings are held in private and corporate collections across Australia, Singapore, Japan, Italy, Canada, America and England.
Traci was selected as a finalist in the Australian Artist Magazine’s 1998 Watercolour Art Prize.
Water colour and gouache along with airbrush ink bring these Australian birds and animals to life. Limited Edition Prints of her paintings are available exclusively through WWOOF Australia.
Wombats are small marsupials that look like a cross between a bear, a pig and a gopher. They are built for digging, with short legs, compact heads, short broad feet and strong claws. Like kangaroos, koalas and other marsupials, they have a pouch. But a wombat's pouch is backwards, and their poop is cube-shaped. Wombats use their claws to dig burrows in open grasslands and eucalyptus forests. They live in these burrows, which can become extensive tunnel-and-chamber complexes. Common wombats are solitary and inhabit their own burrows, while other species may be more social and live together in larger burrow groups called colonies.
