Traci Bixby, Seattle Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement I was born in Spokane, Washington in a time and space that allowed me true happiness. I grew up camping in the summer and sledding in the winter. I grew up with family all around me and have always known support and kindness. When I paint I lose myself in a different time and space that again allows true happiness.
So much of my inspiration comes from my children. Watching them wish on a star or listen to a woodpecker from afar brings incredible imagery. I hope my paintings convey some of the same joy and wonder I see in their faces.
