The reflective qualities of iridescent and dichroic glass have a brilliance that changes with each viewing position.  It is always exciting to open the kiln to see what he has created.  His jewelry has been enjoyed by people in 18 different countries and the United States.


His watercolor emphasizes fine detail, control and patience, while the essence of his silk painting lies in simple forms and vibrant, flowing color.  His painting is strongly influenced by his love of photography and the way a photograph represents just a moment in time.  He loves capturing an image of something he’s recognized as beautiful.


Tracy typically paints subjects in watercolor in a tight realistic style from top to bottom. His silk paintings are in a realistic style with the background elements depicted as abstract representations of its surroundings: just impression of shape, color, texture and mood. This contrast adds visual drama to his paintings. Tracy enjoys finding opportunities to investigate new techniques and forms, and test technical boundaries of his materials, keeping his art work fresh and lively, and invested with a sense of wonder and discovery.


Tracy enjoys color, contrast, and taking a lot of pictures for that next painting or project that makes him unique.  This has been an incredible journey for him.  “Learning always learning – Creating always creating”

              About My Work

Artist Biography -  

​Tracy Harris, is a California artist, creating vibrant silk paintings, watercolors, fused glass, lampwork and jewelry. 


Tracy works in several art mediums:  Lampwork, fused glass, jewelry making watercolors, and hand-painted silk.  The contrast between them is significant yet there is a harmony in their diversity, bringing excitement and balance to Tracy’s art practice. 

Life as an artist brought Tracy the pleasure of working in many different mediums, and now we see how it prepared him for the art of glass fusing and bead making, also known as lampworking.


Tracy was captivated and immediately interested in learning about this new art form.  It has provided him with an endless, creative opportunity to work with fire, form, texture and best of all, color.  Lampwork beads are like painting with glass. He has found warm or fused glass to be the perfect way to use his imagination and creativity to combine color and texture into distinctive fused glass art.  He turns his kiln on to fuse art glass together in intense heat, creating the illusion of fluidity making unique pieces.  He enjoys the light filtering through transparent or translucent glass that play with our perceptions and gives us a sense of depth.


The reflective qualities of iridescent and dichroic glass have a brilliance that changes with each viewing position.  It is always exciting to open the kiln to see what he has created.  His jewelry has been enjoyed by people in 18 different countries and the United States.
