Featured Artist

Tracy Meola
Plaistow, New Hampshire

       Tracy is a professional artist who specializes in Still-Life acrylic paintings. She has indulged in art all her life but has been a serious painter for over 24 years.
       She uses her own adapted technique of lightly layering paint with the use of water, which gives her paintings a soft blended look. Her paintings can have twenty or more layers of paint on them but still look soft and smooth.
       Her style balances between representational and realism. She likes elements in her paintings that have texture and light which is why many of her paintings have glass in them. She enjoys studying an object to find every little sparkle of highlight and color reflection.
       She also enjoys drawing and illustrating. She uses her illustrations to create her line of greeting cards and note cards.
Tracy’s goal is to give others a sense of home, peace, joy or nostalgia through her paintings by combining objects that come together to tell a story or evoke a memory.
       She resides in Plaistow, New Hampshire with her husband and sells her artwork and prints in her online store, For more information, contact Tracy at
