October Eco-Artist: Tracie Megumi Art
Tracie Megumi Art - Shark Guardian Interview Questions
Q1. Hi, Tracie – We’re thrilled to have you as our Eco Artist of the Month for October! Tell us a bit about yourself for those who are not familiar with your work.
Thank you so much! I am an artist, marine naturalist and children’s art instructor. I mainly work with ink and mixed media for my art, and specialize in drawing marine wildlife. With black and white inks, I create detailed stippled pieces of ocean animals in hope of helping people recognize the importance of protecting marine species, and to gain an appreciation for ocean wildlife. My work is driven by a life-long love for the ocean.
Q2. You mention that you have a life-long love of the ocean – When did that start for you?
I have been drawn to the ocean for as long as I can remember. I was fortunate enough to spend most of my childhood growing up in southern California near the ocean and have always been fascinated by the diverse ecosystems that lay beneath the surface.
Q3. Tell us a little bit about what you were doing when you worked in marine eco-tourism and your volunteer work.
