Tracey Nelsen

Hello, creative community! My primary work has been with metal to make anything from tiny, delicate jewelry to large-scale interactive sculptures. My artistic inspirations revolve around my midwest roots; I feel the elements of the Earth mixed with chemically created processes have a distinct relationship that can be shown through metal arts. My background is in Fine Arts from the University of Minnesota and I have exhibited work in Minnesota, the Bay Area, New York, and at Burning Man with Flaming Lotus Girls in 2016. I have worked professionally in education, the arts, was the Workshops Program Manager at The Crucible in Oakland, and am currently an Admissions Director at an EdTech startup based in SF. I love inspiring people to live out their passions, dreams, and creative outlets.
