Tracey studied Fine Art at Goldsmiths' College, London, and Fine Bookbinding and Conservation at Guildford College of Further and Higher Education, Surrey, UK. Tracey is a member of the independent artists group 60|40, founded in 2008 by Tracey Rowledge, Clare Twomey and David Clarke, which aims to expand the environment and opportunities for the applied arts. Tracey is also a founding member of Tomorrow's Past: an international bookbinding collective whose aim is to encourage an alternative and modern approach to rebinding antiquarian books.

Her work has been shown internationally and is held in various private and public collections including The British Library, London, The National Library of Scotland, Edinburgh, and The National Art Library (Victoria and Albert Museum), London. Tracey has received a number of awards for her work, including support from the Crafts Council to go on the 2008 Cape Farewell Expedition to Disko Bay, West Greenland.

Recent work has included a series of drawings resulting from a two-year collaboration with Sarah Warsop, designer and choreographer, commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance, entitled What Isn't Here Hasn't Happened, 2011. Most recent exhibitions include In Parallel, an exhibition of bookbindings at Ian Rastrick Fine Art, UK and Jerwood Encounters for which Tracey made a site specific, solid graphite wall drawing at the Jerwood Space, London.
