MEDIUM: Oil Paint | Acrylic Paint | Graphite Art
SPECIALTY: ✔ Technical
Tracy is an award-winning painter who lives in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She uses oil paint to explore the fleeting experience of being human and observes and distills different moments into a simplified form that is ultimately meant to capture the remains or accumulation of an experience as it slips away.
Tracy has studied occasionally at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts but is largely self-taught, having put together an educational path held together by “dogged determination and love of art,” as described by a fellow artist. Tracy’s work has won numerous awards and has been included in exhibitions throughout the United States. She is known internationally and teaches across the country and has been painting and making art for more than 20 years.
Galleries that show Tracy’s work include Edgewater Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont, Morpeth Contemporary in Hopewell, New Jersey, and Sugarlift online.
Tracy’s work has been included in both regional and national exhibitions. Awards include a national Award of Distinction from the American Impressionist Society, two Bucks County Resident Artist Awards from the Bucks County Plein Air Festival, and several awards from the annual Phillips’ Mill Art Show, the most notable art exhibition in the region, among others.
