Upon leaving school, Tracey trained as a florist, and learned the ropes under the tutelage of well known florists Susan Avery and Alison Coates. During this period, Tracey was able to investigate Australian native flora in all of its uninhibited glory. She started to use the sticks, leaves, branches and anything else she could get her hands on to create three-dimensional art works with a uniquely Australian sensibility. Eventually, Tracey went on to work for herself as a florist, while continuing her floral sculpture projects. Her sculptures began to grow and grow, and soon she found herself undertaking large scale installations. These days, Tracey takes on private sculptural commissions alongside her floristry practice. Her creative drives comes from her endless fascination with the Australian native landscape, a passion that still brings Tracey much joy and wonderment.
