Tracy Burke was born in Duluth, MN in 1971. She received her bachelor's degree in Fine Art from the University of Central Florida in 1995 after attending Lassiter High in Marietta, GA. Tracy explores color and pattern in her large abstracts, and demonstrates presence and confrontation in her stylized figurative work. Live video of her portraits were featured in ten commercial spots for The Golf Channel's season preview, and her abstracts can be found everywhere from hotel lobbies to permanent collections and private residences throughout the world. Twenty-six of her original abstracts were purchased for the permanent collection of the new Amway Center Arena in Orlando, Fl, and are displayed in sky boxes and the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge. She was awarded a United Arts Grant in 2012.
