Tracey Hewitt, artist + writer

If you're looking for fast answers to life's problems and a hard sell, you're in the wrong place. BUT, if you enjoy art and words and creativity, served with a helping of honesty by an open heart - then you might be happy here for a while.

I make art and teach art journaling. I write stuff that seems to touch people (the truth is I write what I need to know, and it turns out, lots of other people need to know it too.) A poet friend of mine recently described me as an Artist-Writer-Healer-Photographer-Weaver-Of-Magic. I can't claim all those things, but I'll happily spend the rest of my days trying to make it true enough to be the job title on my business card.

Have a wander around, make yourself at home and rest here for a while. I hope you'll find something to make you smile. Or something that makes you go "Ahhhh" and causes your soul to take a slow, deep, life giving breath. Or that you'll learn something. Or even find something you need to have in your life, like a book or piece of art. But mostly, I hope you leave here feeling a little lighter and inspired to go and make or do something that makes you happy. Because the world is aching for more happy people.

What IS Art Journaling?

Art Journaling is the intersection of a written diary or journal, and a sketchbook. With a lot of colour. And a fundamental focus on exploration and FUN! I offer an art journaling workshop perfectly suited to beginners who feel a...

Appreciation...

Tracey teaches easy techniques and offers step-by-step instructions that make art accessible to everyone. I was amazed by the beautiful work our group produced, even though many of us hadn’t held a paintbrush in years, if ever!  I would highly recommend this class to anyone looking for a new way to express themselves, get creative, play more and have a few good laughs. Tracey is a blast. Her sense of humour, wisdom, warmth and down to earth nature will make you feel right at home.

To me art journalling is about playful expression whilst exploring my inner world. I really like the way my written word (text) creates a layer of texture which then becomes the base for play and exploration of a variety of mark making and really cool techniques. Tracey has such a wonderful way with people, walking alongside them, encouraging their expression of creativity whether in the written word or images. She does not judge, she loves, laughs and cries with her students, her wisdom is felt and expressed, her sense of self and ability to see life with all it offers whether that be roses or thorns with humbleness and humour is always spot on for me.

Thanks Tracey, for putting it in ink, validating what we mostly know but don’t admit. Giving us your authentic self, was relatable and struck a chord with everyone i know who has read this. I am ready to look after myself and make time for me.
I so enjoyed the practical advice and of course your wonderful sprinkles of humour.
