"We asked Tracey Roberts, a fabulous musician and artist, to do one of her "Your Story in Art" works for Alan and I.
Alan's first response was "She's done brilliantly!!"
A very consultative process, the finished piece of art certainly reveals all Alan's and my key interests.
We are very happy with it. - Thank you Tracey"
Pam & Alan

"Wow, this is fantastic. It's more than I thought it was going to be. I love the colours and the subtle themes - fantastic. It looks perfect - it's going to look great on my office wall. I'm also thinking of getting a smaller piece for the house. My son says it will be a great conversation starter! Thank you very much for doing this.
I have very much enjoyed the journey to create this art work and your beautiful work could not be a better representation of my life to this point."
Ritchie Kashmirian, Manager, Bits in Glass, Canada
"Tracey's work is so beautiful that I asked her to create a commissioned piece for me depicting my journey through a certain period of my life. The result blew me away. I love it and treasure it. Visitors to my home are blown away by its vibrancy and depth. If you have a personal story or journey that is meaningful to you, my message to you is to contact Tracey for a chat. She is so intuitive and beautiful to work with. Charles and I love her work so much we now have 3 pieces and have gifted one to our beautiful friend Kelli Stevens.
I just love it! ... it's exactly me!"

"I'm thrilled to have this Tracey Roberts original taking pride of place on my wall. It's all about ME! I'm sure it will become a talking piece in my family as the years pass and I can imagine future generations gazing at it in wonder, trying to understand who and what I was about. You have captured the essence of me in brilliant fashion! Thankyou my dear friend."

"When it comes to my music album artwork, I am very particular about it. After all, it is something that people can associate with the music in the album. For all of my releases before "Four Seasons Suite", I always used the works of professional photographers. For once, I wanted to hire another professional visual artist whose work I could use as my album artwork, but this time, not a photograph. I saw Tracey's works exhibited at a concert venue where I was doing a gig, and they caught my attention. Later, when it came to the time to start working on the artwork, I thought, "Why don't I have something like this as my album cover illustration?" I envisaged it as a result of Tracey visually responding to my musical suite, without me giving very specific directions. I was pretty much in surprise-me mode. When I saw even the first draft, I was already thrilled. I was not surprised that it was beautiful, but I was surprised that my music could inspire someone else to produce such a beauty. I was, and I still am so happy that Tracey was keen to become part of my project. Thank you Tracey!"
Ade Ishs - Jazz musician / composer
"I really am just so happy with what you have done, it is hard to express fully what the feeling of having a personalized artwork is like - it's unique, it's mine, it's yours - because you did it - but it's also something you just have to share. You want others to share your enjoyment, and from the reaction, that's what's happening. I think it would be fantastic to have the pic out there for all to see. I am very proud of my girl and recognition of her talents is something that she deserves as does the recognition of your talent in being able to produce such a great piece of art. I can imagine others saying, 'I want you to do one for me'. It's different to portrait painting, this art is abstract and shows flair, it depicts the personality of the performance and you cannot mistake who it's about. So far everyone who has seen it starts with a 'gasp' and I believe is captivated by the absolute brilliance of the colours and flamboyance of Linda. I am so glad I asked you to undertake this work and that you agreed to do it. THANKYOU."
Ron Caffyn, singer (who surprised his girlfriend, Linda O'Brien)
"I LOVE it - it looks great - thank you SO much. Your talent has made something so special and memorable for us as a couple, completing our portrait gallery! I can't wait to see the look on his face and then to see them both hung alongside one another."
Linda O'Brien, pianist (who then surprised her boyfriend right back)
"Brilliant work Tracey, love what's on your mind ..."
JoJo Smith, musician / recording artist
"When I look at Tracey's art I feel as if I am diving into magic. Artwork of this nature is powerful and healing. It reminds me of the beauty and gifts that are alive and surrounding me through sounds, colour and shapes - environment, human and beyond ..."
Simone Fitzgerald, clothes designer
"... I'm just blown away ..."
