About The Artist

Hello, my name is Tracie Kiernan!  I am the creator and artist of “Step By Step Painting With Tracie Kiernan”.

I reside in Glendale, Arizona, I’m married to my husband whom is my biggest cheerleader and I am a mother to three boys. 

I have a profound passion for the arts and art education. I’ve been creating and painting all my life! Ever since I can remember, I’ve always loved to draw and paint and create things using whatever materials I had on hand.

Even though I’ve tried out almost all mediums, acrylic paints have a special place in my heart. I love the versatility, the fact that you don’t have to be perfect and if you mess up you can just paint over it! I also have a love for pastels and color pencils.

My art consists of bright colorful palettes and whimsical themes as well as landscapes. 

I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Fine Arts and background in Elementary Art Education. I taught K-8th Grade Art in the public schools for many years. I became a stay at home mom after my second son was born and it wasn’t until after my third son was born that I decided to hone my artistic skills into the online world. Quickly this website blossomed into what it is today.

My Goal With This Painting Blog

My hope is that I can inspire YOU to find time for art and creativity in YOUR life too!

I want to show you how to paint because painting is a wonderful, stress relieving medium and I believe that anyone can learn how to paint. I want to make painting accessible to anyone that wants to learn. 

I understand how intimidating a blank canvas can be. Trust me, I still get intimidated with a blank canvas in front of my! It’s my goal to provide you with guidance and steps for rendering a painting you will be proud of. 

I also understand that so many of you cannot afford painting lessons outside of the home and/or just need an artistic escape without having to think about the daunting steps in designing a painting.  

So many of my users are beginner artists, moms looking for stress relief, parents teaching their children how to paint, art teachers, those that are home bound, those that want to host girls nights and date nights, etc. 

Thank you for reading about me and welcome aboard this artistic journey with me!
