A self-taught multimedia artist, Tracy uses clay, glass, found objects and fibreoptics to create sculptures of light and
density. She also creates work on canvas and paper with a unique approach using liquefied acrylics, various textural
imprinting objects and gold dust powder to capture layers of luminosity, colour and reflection. Her work is in private
and corporate collections in Europe, Brazil, Thailand, Indonesia, U.S.A., New Zealand, Australia, Canada and the
Cook Islands.
