Tracey Harrington Simpson
05.06 - 14.06
Tracey Harrington-Simpson (Taiche) was
born in Yorkshire, England in 1968. Even as a child she showed talents in
drawing, sketching, painting and needlepoint. She received
encouragement from her Art Teacher in High School and has never been afraid
to explore different techniques and ideas in her paintings; the uniqueness
of her work is evident to the eye.
After gaining her degree in Health and
Community Studies at Chester College she was accepted for Management
Training with a well known international retail company. After acquiring an
NVQ 4 in Management she went on to take up a management post working with
people with learning disabilities.
Together with her husband Brian she
first visited Turkey in 1992 on holiday. She and her husband holidayed in
Turkey every year for the next nine years and eight years ago decided to
move to Turkey permanently. They have many Turkish friends and could never
envisage returning to England. After finally settling in Ataköy with three
dogs and eight cats Taiche returned to her love of painting.
She is now frequently featured on the
internet and has received acclaim from many other artists.
Her style has been classed as
re-modernist but her subject matter is both eclectic and unique. All her
paintings shown on the internet have been viewed by many lovers of art (one
painting, now sold, received over 1000 views in a three month period).
Her favorite subject is the female
form, but her many commissioned works include abstract, animals, flora,
portraits and landscapes.
She hopes, that everyone who visits the
exhibition enjoys her work (her motto is: if she would not hang it on her
walls – she will not sell it).
Her more semi-erotic paintings are
available for private viewing by appointment and all her work can be viewed
on Redbubble -
Any comments in the Visitors Book will
be greatly appreciated.
