Meredith Tracy, 1977 – 2021

1/8/22. It is with profound sadness that I report the death of my life partner, Meredith Tracy. She was an angel on Earth. I’m not sure what will be next for me, but I’m sure nothing will ever be the same.

Other Mediums This site is dedicated to my pen and ink illustrations. However, I also do decorative art on wood using a mixture of pyrography and oils. That work is mostly marketed locally, in and around Bradford, Vermont. However, this winter I’m going to test market it at science fiction conventions, starting with Arisia in January. If you would like to see some of that work, please check out my instagram feed: Instagram: @jaytref I also do oil and acrylic paintings on large canvases. This is mostly for my own satisfaction, however I do occasionally enter this work into juried art shows.
