Tracey Bellion is well known for her brilliant and dramatic furniture and room designs that encompass a touch of whimsy. Her “over the top” designs burst with color and infuse multiple mixed patterns not usually seen together. Her sprightly designs play off the unexpected … while producing an elegant, finished look.
Tracey turns the furniture-painting industry on its side with her unusual pairings, hand-painted fairytale designs and bold color statements. Her popular painted pieces usually incorporate elements of black and white and subtle metallics. She is well known for her whimsical “Mermaid Chair” – an upcycled fabric French provincial painted with a playful, brightly-colored, bikini-clad mermaid. Tracey was a leader in creating metallic plank walls, buffalo check feature walls and her newest design: colorful swirling, agate-inspired color pours for furniture.
Her social media fans and clients love her avant-garde style and soak up her furniture, art and room inspirations on Facebook, Instagram and her website: traceysfancy.com. Tracey regularly shares painting and technique tips, before-and-after projects, live video demonstrations, design boards, decorating advice, shopping guides and more. She’s always encouraging her fans to paint with personality.
This furniture-painting force wasn’t always an industry-leader. Tracey raised her first three children as a stay-at-home mom and earned a degree in nursing where she worked in pediatric nursing for 10 years. With the birth of her fourth child, she gave up nursing to be at home again and started working with her creative passions on the side. Tracey painted, crafted and enjoyed room designing for friends and family over the years. Eventually, her natural talent and demands of clients lead her into a creative business.
In 2010, Tracey launched her Etsy shop, shipping her popular furniture and art designs to customers world-wide. Now, her part-time hobby is a full-time entrepreneurship as Tracey runs her website TraceysFancy.com – where she offers online furniture painting tutorials, custom nursery art, plank walls and favorite paint line – Heirloom Traditions, of which she is a brand ambassador and Director of Sales & Marketing.
Tracey lives in San Antonio with her husband, Matt, and is the mother of 4 kids and grandmother of 4. Her work has been featured regularly in San Antonio media and international magazine Reloved. Tracey’s social media is exploding. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest – sharing her creations and painting with personality as always.
Her business is deeply customer oriented. Tracey works one on one with each client to achieve a unique design that will represent her own style AND compliment the existing decor of the clients’ home. If you are looking to take your room or home design to the next level…Tracey is your girl!
