Works In Public Collections, Covered In National Press, Nationally Recognized Artist Who Works On Commission. 

Tracy Lynn Pristas paints large-scale abstract landscapes, oil and cold wax abstracts, mixed-media acrylics, and monotypes. She works in a number of styles and multiple motifs. She is a certified Reiki healer and channels universal life force energy into each of the creations. Pristas has completed over 30 successful painting commissions. Tracy’s paintings can be found in various healthcare settings, senior living facilities,  universities permanent collections, and private residences. She is represented by numerous fine art galleries nationally. 

 Early on in her career, Tracy was awarded five community arts grants from the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. This contributed to her success as a self-taught Chicago painter. She has been honored with artist-in-residencies programs from the Ragdale Foundation, Jentel Arts Program, PLAYA, and twice from Brush Creek Art Foundation. Tracy will be a featured artist in the February 2020 issue of Southwest Art Magazine. She is a 2016 recipient of a direct purchase award from the Colorado Creative Industries, Colorado's state art agency and a 2014 direct purchase award from the Montana Arts Council. Her artwork has been featured in the 2015 Lake Forest Designers Show Home & Gardens, published in Chicago Magazine, Chicago Sun Times, Professional Art Magazine, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Atlanta Style & Design, The Denver Post, Colorado Homes Magazine, The Artist Magazine and more.  

If your television is a shrine in your living room, you might have seen Pristas’s paintings on the Lifetime Television hit series “Drop Dead Diva.”Movie aficionados may have spotted some Pristas paintings in the Jennifer Aniston-Vince Vaughn movie “The Break-Up.”

Tracy was born in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. For 17 years she maintained a studio in Chicago along the city’s Ravenswood industrial corridor, with an elevated train rumbling by her windows. She now resides in Littleton, Colorado, and is freed from having to wear noise-reduction headphones while she paints. Thankfully, the foothills are a transition zone — not a transit zone.

One of the reasons that seasoned collectors select a Tracy Lynn Pristas original is because of her high standards of the archival materials she uses. Most original paintings over 24 x 24 are painted on museum-quality locally made stretcher bars built to last 100 plus years and will be noted as such. All oil paint is the highest quality richly pigmented Williamburg and or Gamblin, both made in the USA. All acrylic paint is Golden also manufactured in the USA.
