Tracey Rood of Purely Pastels

Welcome to Purely Pastels

Putting a face to Purely Pastels

Hi, my name is Tracey Rood and I live in Northampton. My interest for illustration developed while I was a student at Nene College of Art, as it was back in 1985.

After graduating from college, my hobby of producing pastel portraits for friends and family slowly developed into what is now a full-time job. There's no substitute for word of mouth recommendations, and to date, I have been able to rely solely on satisfied customers kindly passing on my details to their friends, meaning some of my portraits have travelled to countries in Europe and as far away as South Africa.

Whether you are looking to commission a portrait for yourself or perhaps a family member or friend, you won't be disappointed with either the service I give or the quality of my work.

My portfolio of work covers horses, cats, dogs, family, historic cars, cottages and landscapes. So whatever you have in mind, please contact me so that we can arrange to talk through your ideas.
