bio

Artist Traci O’Very Covey was born in Salt Lake City and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Utah where she studied drawing, painting and graphic design. She is known for her lyrical paintings of intertwining elements from nature and overlapping symbolic – often allegorical, figures. The various elements in her art interact and mingle harmoniously with a strong interplay between color, shape and line creating dynamic and unified compositions that offer a sense of discovery. “I am inspired by the spirit of nature, and the grace and joy of everyday.”
Traci’s art has been exhibited in various galleries, museums, auctions and is in private and corporate collections. Aside from her fine art career, she has been an award-winning graphic designer and illustrator for over 30 years. Her work has been featured in national design publications and she has illustrated and designed several books. Some of her most locally visible art has been commissioned by Utah Opera, Utah Symphony, Ballet West, the Farmers Market, Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, and Salt Lake County. She has completed two public murals and is currently working on a metal sculpture commissioned by Salt Lake City Arts Council.
