Tracey Ramsay

Tracey Ramsay was born in Wyndham, Western Australia in 1972, but grew up in Juwulinji, her ancestral country, otherwise known as Bow River Country. She began painting in her forties following in the footsteps of her artist parents Rammey and Mona Ramsey, and her sister Kathy Ramsay, and is a member of the Warmun Art Centre, an organisation owned and governed by Gija people to support the preservation of the community’s cultural and artistic heritage. She paints the landscape of the Country she lives in and the dream stories passed down to her from her parents and the wider Gija community, carefully crafting neat graphical compositions that mix together ochre, acrylic and other natural pigments. Tracey was a finalist in the Midwest Art Prize in 2019 and was included in the Revealed Emerging Artist exhibition in the same year. Recent group exhibitions include Badem Mawoondool, Aboriginal Contemporary, Sydney (2020), Our Land Our Place, NAIDOC WEEK exhibition by Artitja Fine Art, Government House, Perth WA (2019), Bow River Country, Aboriginal Contemporary, Sydney (2019).
