Lefty Artist Sharing watercolor journey and art therapy
Tracy Truong is a 4th grade public school teacher living in San Francisco. When Tracy isn’t planning, teaching, or meeting with families, she is a watercolor artist by night. Her paintings range from still-life to mostly loose florals inspired by the beauty in her garden. Painting, for Tracy, has become a protected space of mindfulness and a practice in patience. Her technique is to accept the blooms and organic textures from watercolor to capture the calm, peace, and grace she perceives from nature. She enjoys using loose floral paintings and hand lettering art to create vibrant and attention-getting signs, cards, and home wall decor. The paintings bring her healing and beauty during the pandemic, and she hopes her art inspires her students and adults to feel motivated and encouraged to creatively express themselves.
