Tracy holds a Guinness World Record for the largest street painting by an individual artist since 2006. As a ‘Madonnaro’ Tracy uses the grey asphalt as her canvas drawing 3d images with colourful chalks. Born in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, Tracy got attracted to painting very early in her life. She studied privately as a child and completed a 4 year Bachelor’s degree program at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She continued her studies in naturalism at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy where she first experienced street painting. However, it is her visit to Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival in Santa Barbara, California in 1997 that enthused and introduced her to the world of street painting as an artist. In her own words, ‘I have surely found a suitable medium to express my visions of mind and heart.’
