Originally from Salem, Massachusetts, Traeger di Pietro studied art at the University of Maine in Orono. He now lives and works on Martha's Vineyard, creating multiple bodies of work with strong and creative themes and styles: multi-media work, his 'messenger man' series, local landscapes and marine scenes, the circus, children and their experience, figurative work and found images. His breadth is amazing, his work consistent and sensitive.
As an artist, Traeger is a well-known face in the local art community, encouraging others and bringing his diverse talents to many events and fundraisers for the Island's good. The Artists in Art show is inspired in part by Traeger's example!
