Tracey M. Barnaby | Painter

Greetings!

My name is Tracey M. Barnaby.

I am a Mi’gmaq artist from Listuguj Qc. Arts and crafts were always something that I considered to be only a hobby until last year when I did my first canvas painting. When that brush touched the canvas something sparked inside of me. I connected immediately and have not stopped painting since.
