Traci Jo Isaly has lived and pursued her art in Montana for the past 36 years. She is curious about place, human cultures and their interconnection, and has found that visual artists, photographers, writers, storytellers, psychologists, poets, anti-establishment thinkers, historians and others influence her creative expression. She creates art from a variety of materials and is fascinated with anthropology and the human form. Her work is an attempt to translate the richness of our humanness into art. Isaly has collaborated with teachers in multiple grade levels in on projects involving the creation of figures, traditional artifacts and others.
