Traci has been a long time friend, for over 10 years I have known her to be the artist, mother, teacher and mentor. I have watched her kids grow from when I watched them at 5 and 7 years old to learning how to drive and moving out of the house. They've just come to accept I am apart of their family and probably will never be able to get rid of me.
Traci has always been someone who inspires me, pushes me and allows me to cry on her shoulder when I need it most. When I met Traci, she was my art teacher, my 2D Color art teacher and she taught me everything I know about color. Out of school, we became very good friends and still teaches me so much every time I am around her I learn something new.
She has this great way with knowledge, she has to know why things work and how, from the smallest to the biggest thing, there is nothing she doesn't want to know. Her drive in being a college teacher, a mother to two amazing boys, an insanely talented cook and gardener and admits of all that, she finds time to create the most inspiring pieces of art.
She has been painting the last 40 years of her life and teaching it to students the last 15-20. So when she asked me to help her build a website I couldn't be more humbled that I had a chance to help her for a change. We kept things very simple to allow her work to shine through.
So go check her art out, Traci Stover.
