The artist exhibiting at Brothership in Hertford in November explains how she was inspired by her recovery from a kidney transplant to make her work public
Artist Tracy Charlotte Power has made art as a passion and a hobby her whole life but, in 2018, undergoing a kidney and pancreas transplant understandably made her re-evaluate her life and personal goals.
“I was desperately ill and my life was a very dark place,” she tells Happeninginherts.com. “When my miracle came in the form of a transplant, I promised myself I would start being braver and showing my art. During my recovery period I began putting my art on Instagram and it really took off.
“When I was fully ready to return work, I decided to follow my dream of being a full time artist. I took up residency at the Brothership gallery in Hertford, working from my own studio space and displaying in the gallery. I had to be ballsy and brave but I love every day and embrace the blessings of my life.”
Tracy enjoys using bold colours and designs in her art – David, pictured above, is a prime example.
“I owe a lot to my donor and feel that by taking this risk and really living life to the full, I am exactly where I need to be. I trust the path destiny has set me on and it’s my hope that the positive way I live and breathe art, that that comes through in the bold colours and styles I use and this exhibition is the perfect opportunity to spread the positive vibes.”
Tracy’s exhibition is at The Brothership Studio, Bull Plain, in Hertford from 6th to 8th November. She is encouraging visitors to book a time slot over the weekend to avoid overcrowding. To book, contact her on Instagram @tracycharlottepowerart, email firstname.lastname@example.org
