The Artful Epicure is where art, travel and food intertwine.

16732646303933733352My name is Tracy. I was born and raised in rural Pennsylvania. I was never one for the country life and escaped to a small city when I graduated high school to study music.  It was during this time I got my first international travel experience with a trip to China as an orchestral musician. From that moment on I was hooked on experiencing different places. I wanted to go everywhere!

I’ve lived in Boston, Houston, Philadelphia, and Delaware. I’ve traveled to China, South Africa, Europe, Canada and twenty-six states while experiencing art and eating great food along the way. Come and explore with me!
