illustration and paintings by tracy hall prints and cards

Much of my day to day work is in illustration - turning words into pictures! I really enjoy the variety and challenges it brings. I am often commissioned to produce artwork for jigsaw companies and am particularly delighted to work so closely with The House of Puzzles in Scotland.

A selection of my paintings created for the puzzle market are available as top quality prints and greeting cards in the Shop with delivery available worldwide.

Natural History

illustration and paintings by tracy hall prints and cards
In 2008 The Orkney Book of Birds was published, which I illustrated with fifty full colour plates showing the brids in typical island settings. 

I have also worked with the Orkney ID Field Guides to produce a series of illustrations of dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies, working from specimens in the Lorimer Collection at the Orkney Archive. The Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group commissioned botanical studies for the Viking Heath Project, set up to raise awareness of and preserve the maritime heath and grassland environment. 

Archival signed prints of these paintings and signed copies of The Orkney Book of Birds are available in the Shop.

Pet Portraits

Border Collie Pet Portrait in watercolour by Tracy Hall

A specially commissioned, realistic painting by a professional artist is an increasingly popular way to remember and celebrate a much loved companion.

I have been painting portraits of people's pets for many years with happy customers all over the world.
