This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2004, is from the artist.

Ann Tracy-Lopez spent her childhood on a family farm near the village where she was born, Green Isle, Minnesota, with her four sisters and one brother. The importance of land, family, and relationships is a focus of her paintings, where she uses color to construct compositions about moments and feelings. A sense of history and life is indicated by the means of erasure of line and the layering of iridescent colors. Oil on canvas or linen is her primary discipline, but other mediums may include charcoal, pencil, pumice and fabric.

She received her B.F.A. from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in 1989, and then attended graduate school at the San Francisco Art Institute.

In college, Tracy-Lopez studied drawing and printmaking. She turned to painting at a later date upon frustration with finding accessible printmaking facilities.

In 2002, she attended the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass, Colorado, and in 2004, was a resident of Anam Cara Center for Artists and Writers, Eyeries, on the Beara Peninsula of southwest Ireland.

Over the last several years she has traveled to Ireland several times, and is moved by the history and beauty of the land and the sea. There is a comfort in rural Ireland, with memories of the Irish-American farming community in which she was raised.

Tracy-Lopez considers literature and history strong influences in her work.

She lives with rheumatic heart disease, and credits the illness to forcing her to appreciate each day and do the thing that she thinks she was meant to do - paint.

Tracy-Lopez now lives in Arizona with her husband and one daughter. Although a different sort of experience, she loves the ruggedness of the Sonoran desert and finds it a peaceful place to be creative.

She exhibits regularly in Tucson, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. Her paintings are included in private collections around the world including Spain, Ireland, and New York.
