Tracy Carlin

Artisan Soap Maker, Aspiring Artist

Tracy Carlin is an aspiring artist who stumbled upon soap making in 2014 and enjoys the creative process of handcrafting small batches.  Living many years and raising her three daughters on a small, family farm in the Midwest of the United States created the foundation for bringing the magic of botanicals into her life, work, and home where she now resides in Kansas City. When she isn’t elbowing deep into the soap bowl she loves spending time with family, gardening, drawing, reading, and, of course, socializing in her favorite soapmaking groups.
