Tracy Verdugo

If Tracy Verdugo was given the opportunity to coin a term for a new art movement based around what she teaches she might call it “Curiosity and Wonderism” or maybe “Loosen-upism” or “Endless possibilitism”.

Tracy is an inspiration instigator, gentle guide, prolific painter, bestselling author, smitten traveller and soaker up of all that is beauty-full. She teaches her creative workshops all over this amazing planet and also online, always with the overriding intention to remind her students of the wonder that already resides within them.

When she is not hanging out with her family in their “made with love” adobe home in a small village on the shores of Jervis Bay, Australia, or throwing paint around in her little purple studio in their backyard, you might find her painting beside thermal pools on an Italian island with an eager group of students, or sitting in a circle on St Pete Beach, Florida, listening intently as women share their stories of creative yearning.

Her paintings are vibrant and filled with joy, inspired both by global travels and the simple beauty of the focused moment. Since 2000 Tracy has held 18 successful solo exhibitions and her works are held in collections both in Australia and internationally.

Mostly though, she is mama bear to two gorgeous, zest-filled daughters, Santana and Cece, Ita to precious granddaughter Nora Luz and co-adventurer in life with her amor of 36 years, the talented and brilliant Marco.
