Tracey Paul is the visionary behind Flower-Girl.ca. Her creative flair and interest in art, colour and design likely started as a child when she used to melt down unwrapped crayons in her EasyBake oven to make colourful disks. She used to colour home-made greeting cards using these unique crayon combinations that featured stylized flower designs.
With a keen eye for design trends and details, Tracey used her Applied Arts degree from Ryerson University to punctuate her work in the wholesale fashion industry, product management and marketing in the wallpaper business. She has worked with many ‘best in class’ national brands.
Since 2008, Tracey has been hand-designing eco-chic, life-like clay floral pieces using ClayCraft by DECO. This air-dry, archival clay product can be colour matched to any hue. Tracey utilizes her talent in flower-making into sought-after wedding flowers, hair accessories and mixed media home decor pieces.
Canada's only Certified Instructor from The DECO Clay Craft Academy in Hawaii, Tracey proudly teaches the art of clay flower making to others. She has taught workshops at ScrapFest in Kitchener, private classes to Cake Decorators and Mixed Media Artists.
DECO classes and 'make & take' workshops can be scheduled in (and around) Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.
