Destiny Rescue is committed to eradicating sexual exploitation and trafficking of children globally.  And I am humbled to be able to help provide them, through art, what they need to continue their work.  Every event I do showcases this important organisation as much as it showcases my work. Investment in my art is an investment into a child’s future” says Tracie Eaton.

Tracie Eaton has been an artist for over 15 years. Her self-taught expressive style, combined with her unique understanding of how colour makes us feel (following her training in Occupational Therapy and Colour Psychology)  ensures Tracie’s artworks are emotive and passionate.  Tracies brush strokes capture moments in time, bringing the essence of the unique moments to life.
