I’m a costume designer based in NYC and have had a lifelong love of children’s books. I’ve always wanted to tell stories through illustration, much as I’ve done with theater design.
I received a BFA from the school of Fine Arts at Washington University in St. Louis, with a minor in Art History, and an MFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts in Costume Design. Over the years I’ve continued to pursue my interest in illustration and have taken many classes at School of Visual Arts, including children’s book illustration and digital design classes.
In my illustrations, I’ve tried to bring together my interests in history, fashion, and theater to create a world that uses color, shift in focus and perspective to tell visual stories.www.tracydorman.com
