Tracy Brown was born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan. Tracy believes in the ability of art to transform and bridge minds into understanding and unity. She moved to the desert to teach and make art during the great recession without intentions of staying but fell in love with the slower pace lifestyle, culture, and landscape of the desert.
Over the last decade, Tracy has had an artist studio in downtown Tucson and has been actively showing her art in feminist exhibitions nationally and internationally. Her work has been on display in group shows in venues such as the SOMARTS Cultural Center in San Francisco, Denise Bibro Gallery in New York, Gallery 825 in Los Angeles, the National Steinbeck Center, the Women’s Museum of California, The Untitled Space in Tribeca and the Czong Institute of Contemporary Art in Gimpo, South Korea. Her work on male bonding is included in the public collection of the Gwangju Cultural Foundation in South Korea, which is host to one of Asia’s major biennials. She has had her work on display next to and juried by artists such as The Guerrilla Girls On Tour, Lynn Hershman Leeson, May Willson, Sylvia Slay, Beverly Buchanan, Suzy Lake, and Faith Wilding. Her work has been included in exhibitions juried by directors of major contemporary museum art collections such as Rita Gonzalez of LACMA, Maria Medua of SFMOMA, Lynn Russell of The National Gallery along with Eleanor Heartney, contributing editor to Art in America, Art press and more. Tracy has had work published and referenced in Elle Italia, Marie Claire Brazil, Ze.tt Germany, Dazed Digital, Bullet Magazine the Huffington Post to name a few.

Nostalgia is something that most us have in common. We love to see things from the past that invoke feelings of joy, happiness, rebellion, or a time in our life that was influential. Travel is also something many of us like to do. When we travel we create memories. Some are through photographs or souvenirs. We all have a visceral reaction when we see a piece of art, enter a messy room, or see a stunning landscape. Laughter is a visceral reaction. We love to laugh. When we laugh and smile, for that short time we forget about all of our problems and feel good. I want you to feel good and have fun.
This unique travel art is inspired by my love of skateboarding, graphic design, music, comedy, and movies. It started when I owned a small skateboard company and did most of my promotional graphics with stencils and spray paint.
