About Traci Bautista
Traci is creative director and owner of treiC Designs. She has a Bachelor of Science degree from Woodbury University, with a major in graphic design and marketing. Before becoming a full-time artist, Traci Bautista held jobs as a graphic designer, event planner, marketing director, professional cheerleader, elementary art history teacher, fashion designer, Web designer and tradeshow manager, to name just a few. The variety of experiences that she gained in these positions, coupled with her innate drive to explore and create without boundaries, are what contribute to her growing success as a collage and mixed-media artist.
Traci travels across the country to offer workshops and classes on handmade books, art journals, mixed-media collage, and surface design. Combining her love of making clothes, doodling and lettering, Traci creates vibrantly colored handmade journals, custom handbags and paintings that are layered with rich textures of stained papers, painted sewn fabric, “girlie glam” ink drawings and free-style lettering.
