Growing up in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, Traci discovered an inclination towards art and creativity at a young age. Her pursuit of an artistic career led her from being a self-taught artist to receiving a more formal education from Maryland College of Art and Design. It was there where she realized her love for painting portraits and the human figure. Post-college, Traci continues to satisfy her hunger to fine-tune her skills in several figure and portrait painting workshops and classes.

Since 2013 Traci has been a resident of Reno, NV, where she aims to develop her artistic voice as she leaves her stamp on the art scene. Her work has been featured in several of Reno’s local art spaces, as well as shows in Tampa and LA.
