Tracy Sullivan (Sprouse), a native Californian having relocated to Boston in 1994, and then to Maine in 2001 has a diverse and eclectic background in Art, Music and Theatre that spans both coasts. Tracy started her career in Advertising as an Art Director in Los Angeles; moved to Boston and dove into the digital era of design and interactive work; and eventually moved to Maine and started her own design firm SuttonSprouse Associates. Tracy has worked alongside photographers, printshop machinists, set designers, copy writers, creative directors, camera men and musicians to produce and organize complex productions in both print and film.
Following her heart into community work, social and environmental justice, she has contributed her skills in the Arts since her days volunteering at the Odyssey Theatre and The Globe in Los Angeles; the Womens Crisis Center in Newburyport MA; and most recently at MyPlace Teen Center and The Midcoast Skate Park teaching Art to youth.
Tracy writes and performs her own music, designs and implements gardens and is currently working towards growing a community arts program in the historical home in which she now resides.
At USM Tracy hopes to use her project management and leadership skills in her work with students and faculty in her role as Administrative Specialist CL2 in the Theatre Department.
