Tracy Guiteau is the visionary artist and designer behind Tracy Guiteau Fine Art & Fashion. Born in New York to traditional Haitian parents, Guiteau says her decision to pursue art was often met with criticism. “My parents wanted me to be a nurse, and I got a full scholarship to pursue that field,” Guiteau says. “But then I heard somebody spit and I was done.”
Guiteau says that while trying to pursue the dreams her family had for her, all she could think about was art. It was the cathartic nature of creating art that allowed her to express herself fully. Nowadays, art continues to keep Guiteau focused, grounded and at peace in her life. In short, she says, “I feel like God is art to me.”
