“Girls in White Dresses” – a Celebration of the Innocence, Beauty, and Strength of Girls

Tracy is intrigued by the play of light and shadow on landscapes and people. Tracy states, “I love to drive over the connectors to the beaches just before twilight so I can capture that moment when the sun casts unusual shadows and bursts of color. My daughter sometimes would dance on the beach and the movement merging with the fading sunlight was the inspiring moment for this show. Her passion, beauty and strength motivated me to create this series of paintings of young women in white dresses to accentuate the play of light and the innocent but powerful presence of girls.”

Tracy is from a military family and was born in Holland. Traveling mostly throughout the US, the family finally settled at USMA West Point when her father took a permanent position as a professor. The military world was very restrictive and orderly but all she saw the magnificence of the Hudson valley with it’s rolling hills and of course the Hudson River. She spent much of her teen years sketching down by the riverbank. Tracy’s art evolved as she grew as an artist in genre and style. For a period, she painted very loosely in an expressionistic style trying to capture movement. Tracy studied painting at State University of NY, New Paltz and earned B.S. in Art Education.
