Traci Rabbit

Traci Rabbit is a Cherokee artist specializing in painting, reproductions, and gift items. Her work captures a spirit in the Native American woman that does indeed embody the best in female strength. Her paintings represent the way it feels to be female, to fly in the face of all that comes, with fierce dignity, energy and strength combined with capturing women’s ability to be gentle, yielding, kind and passionate.

Traci is the daughter of Cherokee National Treasure and internationally known artist Bill Rabbit and her mother Karen Rabbit. She was born at the Claremore Indian Hospital and grew up in the Pryor area. At an early age, she began accompanying her father to art shows including Santa Fe Indian Market and IACA. She eventually started finding her voice in her own art through the influence of her culture and family.

Traci attended Northeastern State University and received a BA in Business Administration, the first in her family to attend and graduate college. Although she originally intended to work for the BIA or Cherokee Tribe, the art business consumed her and she applied her business knowledge to growing her family’s Rabbit Studios. The Rabbit family takes pride in producing their art from conception of the original piece all the way through production and packaging, so everything is Native American made.
