An Emmy® and Art Directors Guild Award nominated Production Designer (Starter Wife) Tracey began her career straight out of college in her native Glasgow. Her early experience working in the British film industry was the initial framework on which she built and from which she gained invaluable experience and drew inspiration.

Tracey worked as Art Director on the critically acclaimed Danny Boyle film, Trainspotting, and subsequently collaborated with the director on Shallow Grave and Life Less Ordinary.

Following her move to the States sixteen years ago, Tracey has collaborated with notable director Jon Avnet on his films, Righteous Kill, 88 Minutes; and TV series Starter Wife and TV film Bunker Hill. She has designed several independent films, such as Daltry Calhoun, directed by Katrina Holden Bronson, and produced by Quentin Tarantino; and the Dan Mirvish-directed, Between Us, as well as Jason Ensler’s, Grilled.

Tracey also works regularly in the commercial, music video and new media production realm, earning an MTV Music Video Award nomination for work on Queens of the Stone Age.

Tracey recently completed Ride, directed by and starring Helen Hunt, with Luke Wilson.
