Tracey Cartledge restores architectural mosaics and creates bespoke works of art to commission for both public spaces and private property. In 2014, she restored the mosaic floors of Victoria Station, Manchester, as part of its £44million refurbishment. Tracey plays an active role in community learning: working independently with schools; with adults attending Tracey’s weekly mosaic evening class and studio workshops and delivering workshops for Manchester Museum.
Through Public Art, Tracey strives to add joy to daily life and improve the quality of our shared community spaces. She considers the historical and social context that the work will inhabit and engages with the people whose lives it will impact. To achieve a unique solution every time, her projects call for a broad palette of techniques, an innovative and enquiring outlook and the ability to work flexibly within a range of diverse situations.
Tracey’s education has taken her from a degree in fine art through gas welding and desktop publishing skills, bronze casting, stone carving and several mosaic qualifications. She has been exhibiting her work since 2012. Amongst her works that can be seen in the Mosaic Showcase are Greek Octopus, The Girl Who Fought for Education and The Blues.
