Traci attended Northeastern State College in Tahlequah, OK, receiving a BA in Business Administration in 1993. Her desire was to work for the BIA or for the Cherokee Nation.
“My dad started selling my paintings to galleries when I was in high school and college. Upon graduation, I started attending art shows with my dad.” Somehow, the art business just consumed her and she has never looked back. Her degree has been invaluable to her business.
Much of Traci’s work captures a spirit in the Native American woman that embodies the best in female strength. From the proud lift of her chin to the strands of hair caught by the wind, she appears to weather all storms.
