Tracy’s next exhibition in November 2018 is The Art of Giving, a collaborative event with a creative group called Artists of the Round Yard Inc. This is the inaugural exhibition for the group, which is based out of Retford Park, a National Trust of Australia (NSW) property in the Southern Highlands.  

It is the second National Trust location for Tracy. In May 2018 she had a solo event called Transitions at Everglades Historic House & Gardens, Leura. Transitions was also part of the Australian Heritage Festival and Sydney’s Head On Photo Festival 2018.

In 2016-17 Tracy enjoyed small group exhibitions in Blackheath, Leura and Katoomba. She also participates regularly in the Head On Photo Festival. This includes two solo exhibitions (Leura 2018 and Newtown 2013), and yearly participation in AddOn, one of the festival’s core photographic events.

In 2014, Tracy joined the Eramboo Artist Environment for ‘On Islands’.  Set in Pittwater bushland, her photographs intriguingly hung from trees on the Eramboo grounds. Out this group event, the Avalon Palm Beach Business Chamber invited her to exhibit in an art-in-public-spaces initiative set in Avalon’s main thoroughfare (2015).

Before settling in Australia, Tracy lived in North America, Europe and South East Asia. Now home is the Blue Mountains NSW where she draws much inspiration. 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 Tracy. She offsets the footprint of her photography with certified carbon credits choosing from forestry, biodiversity and renewable energy projects. Separately she funds managed reforestation 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.
