about Tracy Stanley

Hello Friends, 

Welcome to my website. I live and work under the Redwood Trees, a mile from the tiny historic village of Occidental, CA located in Sonoma county. The beautiful ocean is a twenty minute drive away. This nature setting also features, Dutch Bill Creek and the Russian River.

Next to my house, you will find, The Black Beret Art Studio, where I create sculptures and paintings. I also write and illustrate my children's books here. I hand stamp some of the words in my books. Little wonders of nature is my online shop where you can find how-to craft & cooking videos, along with story times.


Thank you for your interest.


Tracy Stanley
