Photographer

Tracy’s next exhibition, Ethereal, is at the Rex-Livingston Art & Objects Gallery, Katoomba, from 2-13 November 2017. She is also working on a photographic project, called Transitions. This is a body of photographic work based on seasonal changes at the Everglades Historic House & Gardens in the Blue Mountains. A heritage-listed National Trust Australia property. Transitions will exhibit at Everglades in May 2018.

Over the past couple of years Tracy has shown works in three other Blue Mountains galleries. In April 2017, she exhibited at Everglades, a show called Resurrect. She has also had 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 the planting of an Australian native through the not-for-profit organisation Trees For Life. Take a look at Tracy’s photographic works.
