Tracey M. Barnaby is a Mi’gmaq artist from Listuguj, Quebec. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Social Work at St. Thomas University and a Masters of Social Work from Wilfred Laurier University.
Tracey’s career in painting was launched as a therapeutic outlet, painting cartoon characters for her grandchildren. Upon sharing her work on social media she began receiving requests for abstract paintings. She accepted the challenge and began creating her own Mi’gmaq designs. Tracey does not believe in assigning a story to her art artwork. “If someone becomes attracted to my art it’s because there’s something about their own journey in life that drew them to it. My art now becomes their story!”
