A New York native, Tracy McKay's love of creating: interior environments, artwork, painting, photography, florals, etc., has been procured by businesses and homeowners for the last 30+ years. After receiving her Bachelors degree in Environmental Design from prestigous Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), she honed her skills at one of the top design firms in the Rochester, NY area.
