I am a visual story teller, PROUD MAMA
AND LOVER OF ALL THINGS YELLOW.
TRACY BAKER // Maker of things
Hello! I’m Tracy and I'm a maker of all kinds based in Northern Ontario. I work from my ‘studio’ in the fenced off half of my living room in Sudbury. I have a two year old son named Wolfe who keeps me company and is the reason for the fence.
I often collaborate with my musician/carpenter husband, Josh Turnbull, including our self published children’s book, The Awful Alphabet. It’s a hilariously silly way for children to not only learn the alphabet, but also learn not to get stuck on little mishaps…after all, it could be worse!
I switch constantly between podcasts, music and Netflix binging while I work. Here are my current faves:
- The Mortified Podcast
- My Favourite Murder
- Sufjan Stevens
- Andy Shauf
Why Yellow House?
My siblings and I grew up in a big yellow house filled with love, where we learned hard work and passion will take you far…but big laughs with good friends will take you the rest of the way. When my mom passed away in February 2018, I realized I needed to stop waiting for the right time and pursue my goals. Since she was my biggest cheerleader and best friend, I wanted to dedicate the name of my studio to her memory so I could keep her close as I go through my days. Yellow House is in honour of my mama and the beautiful life she gave me.
