Hello and welcome. My name is Tracy. I in the country, one mile from the tiny village of Occidental, with a huge Redwood tree outside my kitchen window. My arms don't even wrap all the way around it! Next to my house, you will find, The Black Beret Art studio, where I create sculptures, and paintings on canvas or wood. I also write and illustrate my children's books here. I hand stamp some of the words in my books. One of my books is called The Alphabet Appreciation Book, which is available on Amazon.com or it can be checked out at the Folsom Public Library or Sacramento Public Library. Two of my books are meant to be read to your pets. The Cat Appreciation Book can be read to your cat. The Dog Appreciation Book can be read to your dog. Please enjoy my books even if you don't have children or pets in your life! My hope is that you feel cared for, self-acceptance and appreciated after reading one of my books. Thank you for your interest.
