Tracy Flickinger is an Artist and Illustrator from the Greater Boston Area. She has been a licensed commercial artist for the past 26 years and works primarily in the retail industry. She studied at the University of New Hampshire and at Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics. Since 2007 she has been working as a Special Education Aide part time at the Lyme Elementary School and for the last five years she has since been accepted a full time position. She works primarily with the lower grades; kindergarten through 4th grade. She says it’s a challenge to juggle the two jobs. Her work can be seen on products throughout Canada and the US and occasionally in the UK. The products on which her work can be seen include paper products, tabletop serve ware, wrapping paper and gift cards, gift bags, rugs, wallpaper, fabric towels, place mats, puzzles, and many more.
Currently, she works exclusively with The Intermarketing Group (Amherst NH) which specializes in art licensing. Apart from illustration, her other skills include Textiles, Retail, Logo Design, InDesign, Graphic Design, Sketching, Adobe Creative Suite, Photoshop, Digital Illustration, and Vector Illustration. Tracy’s style combines decorative elegance and monumental qualities with complex foreshortening. Her art has found its way into many art galleries, museums, institutions and even into people’s homes. Her dynamic pieces are infused with intuitive sense of color, creative energy, and an innate understanding of composition. She unleashes her creativity through the impulsive quality of her approach making the process as important as the product itself.
