Tracy Coulam

Tracy studied art and design at North Devon College and went on to study ceramics at Harrow College of Art, in London.

After that, she spent a number of years running pottery workshops across the area, firstly, from her studio in Porlock, Somerset, where her work was on display. Then, she did Raku workshops for visitors at the Milky Way attraction, in North Devon. This was followed by ceramics classes at the Plough Art Centre, in Torrington, before working with adults who have mental health & learning difficulties at Looking Forward Centre, Bideford and the Gateway Club, Barnstaple.

When she is not in her studio, she is a primary school teacher. Tracy often finds ways to integrate art into her lessons and do what she can to inspire the children at a young age, as she feels that artistic expression can be of real value to an individual.

Her work:

Tracy lived in a quaint village of North Devon, for the past 20 years, with her husband and two children. She feels a deep connection with this beautiful part of the world and draw upon the area’s rustic charm as inspiration for her work. In her pots and paintings, one can find the textures and shapes of the area: the quaint cottages, tumbling cobbles, and historic harbours, the cliffs, buildings, boats, and beaches that feature so strongly in the identity of North Devon.
