Tracy Magen Rosen graduated The Philadelphia College of Art with a B.F.A. in Illustration. She and her husband, Richard, relocated from the Philadelphia area to Naples in 1994. As an artist Tracy’s work tends to be quite diverse. She has painted and drawn since her youth and has received several awards in recognition of her talent.
Much of her work has naturalistic qualities enhanced by her use of watercolor as a medium. Tracy enjoys working in pastel, as well, and drawing in graphite and colored pencil. Her current work features 3-dimensional assemblage and collage incorporated with a variety of box designs. She was designing and beading jewelry in semi-precious stones before it was stylish to do so. Presently, Tracy is wire wrapping quartz crystals, for pendants and earrings. Her work is featured in a number of southwest Florida specialty boutiques.
Tracy has shown her work at the Norris Center and the Members’ Gallery at the von Liebig Art Center in recent years. She is a juried artist with the Naples Art Association’s Art in the Park Shows collaborating with her husband. Tracy has been a participating artist in the Gators Galore event, as well as the Wet Paint Auction, both sponsored in part by the Naples Art Association.
In 2013 at the Naples Museum of Art, she was a featured artist in INCOGNITO at Friends of Art. Rosen was a featured artist in Chalk Art 2011 presented by Naples Pelican Bay Rotary Club. She had two pieces juried into the 2011 Annual Members Exhibition at The Art League of Bonita Springs. Since January, 2007 Tracy has been a resident artist exhibiting her work at NAPLES ART STUDIOS which is a founding member of the Naples Art District in Naples, Florida
