Bringing Nature To Life in Backyards

A Midlands woman wanted to taker her creativity to the next level. News19's Kayla Binette explains.

Lexington, SC (WLTX) -- When you love what you are doing, is it really considered work?

Tracy Sysk recently moved to the Midlands to be closer with her son, who she gave up for adoption 21 years ago. She is an art teacher in the Midlands and the co-owner of Hidden Treasures in Lexington. 

"When I first moved here, I did Soda City and festivals, and I always broke even with my paintings," said Sysk.

But she wanted to take her creativity to the next level. She posted on Facebook that she could paint murals on personal fences - from trees to flowers to animals.

"I did murals when I lived in Florida. It's been awhile, but I could do that again," she said.

Within days of posting it on Facebook, Sysk received dozens of requests for mural paintings.

"My last painting was in a man cave. It was a 3D image of the Steelers' locker room," said Sysk.

Sysk is working three jobs now, but she said she would not trade it for anything.
