Local New Hampshire artist/illustrator Tracey Dahle Carrier has donated over 50 illustrations and original artwork for an online auction, of which 100% of the proceeds will go to Families in Transition.  Tracey Carrier's artwork has been published in several children's books and exhibited worldwide.

As families and individuals struggle to gain normalcy after two years of pandemic life, the online auction aims to raise funds from Tracey's artwork to support the vital services that Families in Transition provides to people in need throughout New Hampshire communities. Bidding for the artwork runs through April 30. All items are on display and can be viewed in person at Bedford Presbyterian Church (BPC). Tracey Carrier and Bedford Presbyterian Church are working together to host the online auction and display the artwork throughout the month.

Tracey Dahle Carrier of Bedford, NH launched her career as a children’s book illustrator in 1998 when she collaborated on an educational booklet for children featuring whimsical church mice characters inspired by the people of Bedford Presbyterian Church (BPC). This project led to subsequent illustration deals with other book publishers over the coming years. In 2003, Tracey and her co-author, Ruth L. Boling, held a book signing at BPC and donated 100% of the proceeds to Families in Transition.

Two decades later, at this critical time of need in our community, Tracey is bringing her illustration career full circle by donating all her original art prints to raise funds for Families in Transition.

You can mark your favorites with the "heart" icon in the upper right corner of each thumbnail. Select the hammer icon for artwork or the dollar sign icon for books/calendars. Items are awarded to the highest bidder at the conclusion of the auction or when a bidder is the first to reach the Estimated Value of an item during the bidding process. Credit cards will be processed at the conclusion of the auction.
