Statement
Tracy Lynn Pristas paints large-scale abstract landscapes. She derives her visual information and enthusiasm from nature, then departs into abstraction.

Tracy’s paintings can be found in health-care settings around the Midwest, including collections at Northwestern Memorial Hospital (Chicago), Central DuPage Hospital (Winfield, Ill.), Lutheran General Hospital (Park Ridge, Ill.), and St. John's Mercy Medical Center (St. Louis). She is represented by several art galleries and art consultants.

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,” now in its fourth season. Movie aficionados may have spotted some Pristas paintings in the Jennifer Aniston-Vince Vaughn movie “The Break-Up.”

Tracy was born in Latrobe, Pa. 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, Colo., and is freed from having to wear noise-reduction headphones when she paints. Thankfully, the foothills are a transition zone — not a transit zone.
