About

Tracey worked in ICT 10+ years before her career change to contemporary artist and senior–secondary school ICT/art teacher. She is a diverse, emerging contemporary painter with an interest in how artists sanitise the landscape through the process of trying to capture it. She is also known from her new media light-box installations - that have involved total concept design, media design, custom electronics and delivery on time and to budget – showcasing her work in galleries like Sawtooth ARI.
