Meet the Artist
Hi, I'm Tracie (also known as Kohola Kai Creative) and I am an artist and a naturalist specializing in marine mammals.
My artwork in inks and mixed media is driven by a life-long love for the ocean and all its inhabitants. With experience working in the marine eco-tourism industry, volunteering for ocean conservation causes and teaching as a children's art mentor I am grateful to have a lot of inspiration to draw from.
My artwork is one way I hope to advocate for ocean conservation, raising awareness about various issues such as climate change, over-fishing, shark finning and. dolphin captures for the captive trade. We are all connected to the ocean in one way or another- after all, the ocean is the source of most of the air we breathe! Through my work, I hope to help people recognize the importance of protecting marine species, and to gain an appreciation for ocean wildlife.
