Welcome to Tracy Anne Northey's website: artist, writer and therapist.

Welcome to my website!

I'm excited to launch my workshop "Creative Emergence" on fostering the creative process. Inspired by Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, it's open to artists and non-artists alike. You can find all the details on this site. Just click on the link to the left. 

You can also explore my personal art practice on this site. This is where I share my creative self. I was compelled to start painting several years ago in an effort to balance the cerebral and left brain part of myself with my right brain creative self.

Although the focus of my art continues to shift and evolve, I am struck by a constant that lands on the canvas. It is there, unintentional, across subjects: still life, symbolic expression, nature, seascape... Some would call it ‘style’. To me, it is really an aspect of myself reflected in my painting.

 

Thank you for visting me during the NS Art Crawl March 7 & 8th at the Hollyburn Sailing Club. Your support means alot and I hope those who took something home enjoy your new pieces. 

Much of my work is inspired by the impressionists and post-impressionists, and Vincent van Gogh is the muse for the series in the "Spirit of Vincent" gallery on this site.

About Tracy Anne

North Vancouver, BC, artist Tracy Anne Northey paints primarily in acrylics. She started to paint several years ago in an effort to balance a predominantly cerebral left brain existence. Her style continues to evolve largely through the previous mentorship of internationally renowned James Picard, in addition to significant instruction from the acclaimed Betty Woo. She is also grateful for the guidance of Calum Cameron who supported her to paint her first acrylic on canvas at his studio in the Galeria del Sol in Bucerias, Mexico.

Northey’s work is exhibited locally and internationally, with permanent collections at the Hollyburn Sailing Club and Lions Gate Hospital. More recently, Northey was accepted into the resident mentorship program at Dene Croft Studio where she plans to further cultivate her art practice.  

Alongside her evolving art, Tracy Anne's profession as a social worker and psychotherapist increasingly draws on the creative self. Stemming from the work of Carl Jung, Tracy Anne incorporates journaling, art and paying attention to dreams to facilitate healing and a deeper understanding. 

Tracy Anne believes creativity is something we all hold and can be expressed variously: work/vocation, tending the home, music, art, gardening, relationships- the list is endless. Her course Creative Emergence, based on Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way, offers eight weekly sessions to discover, or recover your creative self.
