Tracey Moscaritolo loves to paint and she loves color! Her acrylic paintings exude both vibrant color and deeply rooted emotion. Detail, sharp contrasts and a wonderful ability
to blend hues combine to create colorful landscapes, seascapes and simple scenes from everyday life. Her paintings impart to viewers a true sense of peace and tranquility, transporting them to some of nature's most serene locations. Tracey's unique expressions on canvas are created in a Fauvist/Impressionist style which carefully balances and harmonizes her response to life. Her subject material is straightforward - filled with color and emotion. Her work has been described as "sophisticated simplicity." Her paintings make people happy!
Born and brought up in the West End neighborhood of Boston, she was inspired at an early age by plein air painters of Provincetown during summer visits with her sister. Tracey has been hooked on painting ever since!
Tracey Moscaritolo maintains a studio gallery, located along Artists Row at
422 North Coast Highway in Laguna Beach, where clients are invited to casually come by to meet the artist and browse through her body of work. Tracey exhibits at various art shows throughout the year and in private collections. She has been a Sawdust Festival artist since 1970. "I was a metal sculptor for several years, but once I began to paint, I knew I had found my true path."
Tracey has studied with well-known painters and at the Art Institute of Southern California.
