Growing up in a military family and moving every two years, gave Tracy the opportunity to help redesign the family home many times. She learned from her parents the arts of carpentry and sewing and went on to hone her skills by earning a BS degree in Interior Design from Virginia Tech. After college, she moved to NYC to design furniture for a retailer in SoHo before working directly for a furniture factory in LA. New York called her back and in 2000 she started her current company, tracy steele Designs, inc continuing to design custom furniture, apply her carpentry and designs skills to designing sets for independent films, and creating beautiful residential interiors.
When she is not designing or scouring the shops, you may find her skiing in VT or sailing with the Manhattan Yacht Club.
