Tracey Keller is a Queensland Artist who loves animals.
Her mission with her painting is simple "to paint joy".
Working with an aesthetic that varies from hyperrealism to her own brand of quirky impressionism, Tracey creates comic and endearing portraits of animals. The ability to be at once lighthearted and mischievous makes each of her paintings instantly engaging and endlessly enjoyable.
Tracey's foray into the art world commenced with a bang in 1999 with a sell-out of her debut solo show. Since then Tracey career has rapidly gained momentum on the national and international art scene over the last 10 years
There has been much critical acclaim for her work in frequent media reviews and interviews. She has guested on several national television shows including The Today Show, Channel Nine and Totally Wild.
Tracey works closely with many charities and she has raised over $100,000 to date for these organisations.
Her work is held in many private collections throughout Australia and in Japan, France, Scotland, UK, USA, Dubai, New York, Germany, Zurich and South Africa.
