About the Artist

Traci O’Very Covey was born in Salt Lake City and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah in 1983. She has been an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator for more than 20 years. Her work has been featured in national design publications and she is illustrator and designer of several books. Traci’s years as a communication artist have influenced her fine art with a keen sense of composition and use of color. She communicates an essence or narrative by overlapping compositional elements that often unite with a central figure.


Traci enjoys working in a variety of media, from ink, gouache and acrylic to digital pen. Her use of color, shape, and confident brush strokes give her paintings an energetic, lyrical and sophisticated quality. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries, auctions and are in private collections.
