8 Icon   Art has been in my life since childhood, and I have been a public artist for over 20 years. I produced my first public murals in high school, where I modeled my friends and teachers as characters in the Peter Pan story – the final work was painted on the interior of the school and left as a final project in my senior year. Since then I have been working doing portraiture, tattooing, various fine art projects, and a public muralist for the Mural Arts Program for the City of Philadelphia. Most recently, I’ve begun a graphic design business, and the fruit of that you can see on this site. I attended the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art from 1994 to 1996 in New York City; I studied drawing, painting and sculpture. After this I continued my training in the field. You’ll see the theme of my work presented on this site is the combination of graphic design and hand drawing – I like to mix in my fine art background, and my aesthetic for the grittiness of drawing into my graphic work. line   Here are some links to my work:   http://www.traceyevelynbeautifulyou.com http://www.finallypcds.org http://www.nittanyvalleycoc.org/ http://www.swimmingthestrait.com/ http://makemusicny.org/blog/pete-m-wyer-and-death-shall-have-no-dominion/ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jody-christopherson/thomas-poem-becomes-syncr_b_5491825.html http://www.time.com/time/photogallery/0,29307,1649278,00.html http://www.phillymuralpics.com/bringing-a-mural-to-life/ http://matadornetwork.com/nights/the-murals-of-philadelphia/ http://temple-news.com/news/new-housing-will-obscure-years-old-campus-mural/ http://www.smokefreephilly.org/about-us/art-murals/ http://philly.curbed.com/tags/in-living-memory-those-of-us-alive http://philly.curbed.com/tags/mural-arts-program http://itsjustphilly.blogspot.com/2009/05/murals-of-philadelphia.html http://articles.philly.com/2015-06-05/news/63090289_1_mural-arts-program-john-lewis-wall‏   line
