tracy a. fitzgerald
Tracy A. Fitzgerald is a full-time artist known for her dramatic, larger than life, colorful canvases. Her mixed media canvases combine her love of paint with collage and texture to give the viewer many layers to explore and become immersed the piece. Her human forms give you a sense of relatability as they skillfully blend into their natural surroundings.
Fitzgerald, a contemporary painter from New Jersey, spent 25 years in the public school system as an art educator who continued to pursue her career in art. After recently retiring, she spends her days in the studio, and dedicates all her time to her craft.
Fitzgerald received her Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts and her Master of Arts in Teaching from Monmouth University in Monmouth, NJ.
She has been a part of various exhibitions at Gallery One Main in High Bridge, NJ, as well as several Alumni shows at Monmouth University. Fitzgerald feels incredibly lucky to be able to help others through the creation and auctioning of her artwork for charity. She has donated works for auction for various charities including Gateway Regional Rescue; was one of the artists that contributed to the Easton Community Artists Mural in PA and the Purple Cow Creamery. Fitzgerald was the artistic "heart" chair for the National Marfan Foundation Gala event in New York City for six years, giving her the ability to not only create, but give back to a cause that is so very close to her, as she too is afflicted with this disease. Fitzgerald was a founding member of SOMI Fine Art Gallery; this artist-managed gallery was in the heart of Flemington, NJ's emerging arts district. SOMI feature exhibits in many different local venues including CUT Hair Design, and Hopewell Valley Bank. Recent exhibits include the Bucks County Art Council members’ show and R.E.D. show. Fitzgerald lives and works from her studio in Hunterdon County, New Jersey with her husband.
