About The Artist

Hello, my name is Tracie and I am the creator and artist of “StepByStepPainting.net”. I reside in Glendale, Arizona, married and am an all boy mom!

My three sons are ages 4 and under and, yes, they keep me very busy! When I’m not chasing after them, I’m drawing in my sketchbook, painting in my home studio (ahem our garage) and gardening & crafting when I get the chance!

As a former Elementary School Art Teacher, I have a profound passion for the arts as a necessity for everyone.  I believe everyone is an artist! Painting is one of many mediums artists use as a creative outlet. I hope that I can help you on your painting journey no matter where you are on it.

This site is for all ages and skill levels, families and even kids! Emphasis is placed on “self learning”. I don’t really get into theories or formality of painting, although I do throw in educational tad bits along the way! It’s really all about the process and having fun here!

If you need to reach out to me for anything, feel free to contact me here or on my Facebook page!
