Tricia was born in West Virginia, but has spent most of her life in the Eau Gallie area of Melbourne, FL. She fell in love with painting at a very early age. She tried many other mediums, but oils were her preference. It wasn’t until around 2017 that she discovered acrylics, and loves working with them to create her wildlife paintings. Now she loves both mediums.
Her style is realism, with a bit of impressionism thrown in from time to time. Tricia Said that her desire is to have everyone who sees her work would be moved to a beautiful memory or feeling in their lives. She is a Christian, and gives thanks for the beauty that God has created to surround us every day.
