In the realm of creativity and art, few journeys are as fascinating and inspiring as that of Tracy Dawn Brewer.
As the owner of a creative company, Tracy has been at the forefront of innovative artistic practices, using both traditional and digital mediums to express her ideas. In the inaugural episode of Brewtifully Made, she shares her passion for art and doodling, her creative process, and her aspirations to open a gallery studio and shared maker space.
Born and raised in a small town, Tracy's early exposure to art was through her mother, who was a talented artist. From painting murals in her classroom at the age of seven to creating paper dolls and cartoons, Tracy's artistic tendencies were evident from an early age.
Despite the lack of opportunities and resources in her small-town setting, Tracy remained determined to pursue her love for art. She recalls the struggles of applying to art school without knowing what a portfolio was, and the challenges of navigating a career path that wasn't considered 'realistic' in her community. Throughout her life, Tracy has continually sought ways to combine her passion for art with her interest in technology.
One of her notable works involves augmented reality, where she animates her art, adding an immersive and engaging dimension to it. Tracy also shares her love for miniatures and her use of social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok to share her work with a wider audience.
Another highlight of Tracy's artistic journey is her Kickstarter project aimed at opening a gallery studio and shared maker space. She envisions it as a platform to showcase other artists' work and provide a conducive environment for learning and creativity. Her dream is to have a pop-up area highlighting a new artist every month, where they can sell their work and retain all the profits. Tracy's love for community outreach and her desire to support other artists is a testament to her generosity and her belief in the power of shared creativity.
Being 'brewtifully made', as Tracy calls it, is about staying true to oneself. For her, it's about acknowledging and celebrating the beauty and kindness inherent in everyone. Through her podcast, Tracy hopes to inspire others to embrace their creativity, learn new things, and make their unique contributions to the world of art.
