Nine Acres Designs, LLC | About


Tracey Grumbach is a digital and photo artist working out of Northern Harford County, Maryland. Her ongoing fight with Chronic Lyme Disease forced her to give up a career as a real estate photographer but led her into a career as a digital artist. All of her art has a direct connection to her struggle and triumph over this difficult illness.

Her artistic passion and focus is creating dream-like worlds that make the viewer guess if the art is a painting, a photograph, or something in between. She uses many layers and elements in her work just as a traditional mixed media artist would. Textures, historical documents, vintage portraits, digital stamps, digital paintbrushes, text, scanned papers, and photographs all play an integral role in her art. 

Tracey’s work can be seen at local art galleries, including Arts By the Bay Gallery in Havre de Grace, MD.  Tracey’s photography and digital art work has been used by ad agencies, and has been published in popular local, national, and international magazines and newspapers including Baltimore Magazine, Artful Blogging, and Somerset Digital Studio.  She has received recognition for her photography including Aminus3's Spotlight Image 6 separate times, the winner of a photography contest for a nationwide retailer and the National Aquarium in Baltimore, and listed as one of the top 20 photoblogs in Baltimore.

Tracey lives on a small farm with her husband and their four children. She is passionate about the health, Lyme disease awareness, organic living, and the environment. During her free time Tracey likes to garden, read, and hike.
