Biography



For Tracee Gentry Matthews painting has always been a way of life.  

She has been creating art since childhood. After the birth of her daughter in the year 2000 and a Bachelor of Science degree, she became a full-time artist. Tracee is exceptionally passionate about her work. 

Tracee’s paintings are energized-even pulsating. Her paintings of cityscapes have rapidly captured the favor of discriminating collectors skylines and 

still lifes across the United States.

Whether it be a miniature painting, a large canvas, or a mural, Tracee’s work perfectly complements the homes, offices, and commercial buildings they are increasingly found in, whatever the setting, style, or period.

Tracee can capture the beauty of life in all of her works. Her unique style seems to captivate the viewer with all of the senses. 

“Heavily textured canvas” with rich, vibrant colors and so much passion that one can feel the Painting move their soul only says.”

Artist Statement



Painting, to me is a passion for life. It is deeply rooted within my soul and has been there since childhood. I love bringing a painting to life with a world full of touch, taste, smell, sight, sound, and emotion by applying the brush to the canvas. A city skyline, to me, is full of all these things. When I paint one, I listen for its heartbeat and, with that rhythm, begin to create something magical. I love to paint outside of the lines. This freedom of expression has allowed me to paint full-time since 2000. I feel very blessed and fortunate and hope to continue this journey for the rest of my life. I hope the viewer of my works can step inside the paintings and see the sights, feel the changing of the sky, hear the sounds, taste the tastes, and smile with happiness.
