Tracy Steepy is an artist whose work focuses on the format and subject matter of jewelry. She received her BFA from Indiana University and her MFA from the SUNY/New Paltz Metals Program in 2000. In 2008, she participated in an artist-in-residence program, supported by IASPIS (International Artists Studio Program in Sweden) at the MADE BY studio in Stockholm, Sweden.
