Tricia Tusa was born in 1960 as a baby years ago in the swampy parts of Texas. She passed her rite of passage in New York City throughout her 20’s and now lives happily ever after in northern New Mexico. She loves to make things, loves to draw and paint and print. She loves to then make all this into 3d using clay. She loves to sew.

Her commercial work also includes illustrations for various magazines, posters, labels, jacket covers, graphic design, and (even) bus stop shelter art.
