"It's a fun, creative experience with a lasting end result. Just like my oil painting, my photography captures a moment in time including all the emotion and connection I can infuse into each pixel. I exclusively photograph portraits - with a specialty in HS Senior guys and girls and fashion/glamour portraits of everyday women with a modern flair. I love people and I love how my lens lets me to connect with another human being on a meaningful and artistic level. I see beauty in every face and in every personality. I manifest that beauty, both inner and outer, in my final images. We bring out your beauty with artful hair, make-up, wardrobe, styling, location, and posing. From conception, to capture, to editing and retouching, I see everything with my award winning painter's eye" --Tracey

About Tracey A Frugoli
Born in 1966 in Chicago, oil painter and photographer Tracey Frugoli has always known she would be an artist. Growing up in a creative household, she enjoyed unusually intensive art training in her suburban high school. She went on to earn a BFA in fine art, and a MA in Art Therapy. She has been painting in her current style since 1998.
Inspired by light and beauty, Frugoli unapologetically eschews novelty and shock in favor of authenticity. She views the painting process as a humbling endeavor that seeks to reflect and, thereby, enhance the most noble of our ideals. Her photography affects her painting, and vice versa, in unexpected ways.
Frugoli has won numerous art awards including First Place "Wayne Plein Air" 2012 in PA and Second Place Quick Draw and Award of Excellence "Sedona Plein Air" 2012 in AZ. As well as Artist's Choice "Paint Annapolis" 2012; Second Place and People’s Choice “MAPAPA Dueling Brushes” 2009, Museum Purchase Award and Honorable Mention “Plein Air Easton” 2007; First Place “Havre de Grace Plein Air ” 2006; First Place Quick Draw and Best Architectural Painting “Plein Air Easton” 2005 all in MD. She has exhibited throughout the country, and has been accepted into Greenhouse Gallery’s “Salon International” 2005-6, and 2009-12 in San Antonio, TX and won Jury’s Top 50 award in 2011.
Frugoli’s artwork hangs in the permanent collection at the Academy Art Museum in Easton and in numerous private collections. It has appeared in American Artist and Plein Air Magazine. She has written freelance for Workshop Magazine, Plein Air, and Fine Art Connoisseur (FAC). She is the current Illinois/Midwest Regional Editor for FAC, and her most recent article, about the Hoosier Salon, appeared in the November/December issue.
Her most recent endeavor involves developing her portrait photography as both an artistic end in and of itself and as means to produce photographs that allow for and inspire better paintings.
