BIO

Tracy spent her formative years in a small town in BC. As a teenager, she began working professionally in live theatre, in Kelowna, BC and then Edmonton, AB. This culminated in her organizing music events and a large-scale music and arts festival. Upon moving to Vancouver, she began a career in communications, primarily in health care and health research, and paid her way through art school working as a freelance writer and communications consultant. At the time she was focused on printmaking, large-scale drawing, and creating installations that incorporated photography, found objects and materials, and textile sculptures.

 

Shortly after graduating with a BFA in Visual Art from Emily Carr University of Art & Design, her life trajectory changed dramatically when her home and studio were lost to fire in 2005. That event was followed by a long-time serious illness. She began making art again in 2008, shifting to small-scale works (paper and fabric), and selling her art online. Recently she’s started shifting back to creating larger pieces.
