About the artist

Tracy Williams can’t remember a time when she didn’t love to draw clothes. Some of her earliest drawings, renditions of scenes from the film, Mary Poppins, spare no detail where the characters’ costumes are concerned. When she figured out that one could get paid to draw for a living, she enrolled in art school and earned her BFA in Fashion Illustration. Years later, in graduate school, she rediscovered her love of paper dolls—so much so, that she made paper doll art the focus of her Master’s thesis.

Today, Tracy is part of the advertising community, coordinating media for one of the Gulf coast’s largest casinos, and serving on the board of her local AAF club. Her professional history includes designing logos, ads, promotional material, and packaging, for clients as diverse as : JCPenney, Belk stores, Matco Tools, NAPA Auto Parts, and the Racine Scouts Drum and Bugle Corps. She is a 7-time ADDY Award winner for illustration and design.

Tracy Williams currently lives on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi with her family and 2 spoiled cats. She draws and paints paper dolls whenever she can, but is sometimes seen at her sewing machine, planning her next cosplay.

    What a talented artist! I wanted to let you know I believe you may have incorrectly tagged us on Twitter over the weekend. The Methodist Health System you tagged is based in Omaha, NE. I’m guessing your amazing paper plates may be staying closer to home?
