Tracy’s upcoming exhibition, Transitions, is a project with the National Trust property, Everglades Historic House & Gardens, Leura. She will exhibit her works at the Everglades Gallery in May 2018. Transitions will also be part of the Australian Heritage Festival, and Sydney’s Head On Photo Festival 2018.

Over the past couple of years Tracy has shown works in four Blue Mountains galleries. In November 2017 she exhibited a series called Ethereal at the Rex-Livingston Art & Objects Gallery, Katoomba. In April, she collaborated on a joint show, Resurrect, with printmaker/assemblage artist Jan Melville.

In 2016 Tracy participated in two exhibitions in Blackheath with The Printed Habitat, a Blue Mountains creative group she began in 2015 with two other artists.

Tracy has also participated in the Head On Photo Festival for five years. This includes a two month solo exhibition in Newtown, and yearly participation in AddOn, one of the festival’s core photographic events.

In 2014, she was part of a collaborative project at the Eramboo Artist Environment called ‘On Islands’.  Set in Pittwater bushland, her photographs intriguingly hung from trees on the Eramboo grounds. Out this group exhibition, the Avalon Palm Beach Business Chamber invited Tracy to exhibit works in an art-in-public-spaces initiative set in Avalon’s main thoroughfare (2015).

From 2009 to 2014 Tracy lived in Pittwater’s boat-access-only Scotland Island. During that time she participated in several exhibitions and events with the offshore artist community, including a cooperative gallery space at Church Point.

Before settling in Australia, Tracy lived in North America, Europe and South East Asia. Now home is the Blue Mountains. She carries out the entire capture-to-print process of her photographs, the latter in her Katoomba studio, called Feathermark. It is important to her that she manages all aspects of a print’s creation.

A sustainable art practice is just as important to her. Tracy offsets the footprint of her photography with certified forest conservation carbon credits, and separately funds managed reforestation projects in Australia. For each photographic print sold, Tracy funds an Australian native through the not-for-profit organisation Trees For Life. Take a look at Tracy’s photographic works.
