Tracy Ann Herrmann
Tracy's art conveys sensitivity, "whimsy with a nip of humor and heart." Her creative technique
pairs water media and drawing with digital painting. Her finished color work is digital.
Tracy Ann's passion has always been painting and caring for animals and wildlife.
Her five year old self once drew a picture of gorillas with the title "I want to be an artist".
And so, five plus (and then some) years later her passion burns bright. A lifelong student,
Tracy studies life sciences and spirituality--Zoology, natural history, animal care, nutrition and
healing, and how we relate to animals symbolically in dreams and waking life.
Tracy's creative venues have included Hallmark Cards, various gift and print companies that service Yellowstone, Yosemite and Rocky Mountain National Parks, The Seattle Zoo and Aquarium, Art Licensing, and children's nature and animal themed story books for independent authors, including her own books.
In addition to her creative work, Tracy has her own pet sitting business where she cares for special needs and senior pets while their people are away from home. Her animal clients include many kinds of dogs, cats, habitat pets, ducks and geese, and a 19 year old goat named Shadow. Shadow likes to hang out with his "Mom" watching television. Tracy Lives in the Sacramento area with her family and pets.
