Tracy Lynn Deines


Tracy Deines is a graduate with a Bachelor's in Media Arts and Animation at The Art Institute of Colorado.

At a young age, she competed in local and international contests, such as Montana Junior Duck Stamp Contest and Annual Lions International Peace Poster Contest in order to gain publicity. This soon gained her the opportunity to do a mural for a dinosaur museum upon high school graduation in 2006.

Since high school graduation, she has done small freelance jobs, eager to start a more defined artistic career. After a few years of travel to each coast, she has settled in Denver to obtain a higher education degree. After graduating with a BA in Media Arts & Animation, she began working for small studios and continued building a network.

Presently lives in Northern Ireland and currently seeking teamwork roles.
