It was in Moscow, Russia at her first exhibition in October 2013 one of Tricia’s sculptures officiated by Prince Albert II of Monaco, where he would then award and autograph her sculpture. “The Eagle" crafted in collaboration with Mateo Mornar would soon sky rocket in value, as the piece would claim the masterpiece of the entire exhibition at “Zurab Tsereteli” Art Gallery. Her now famous sculpture “The Eagle” can be found on display in the private garden of Roquebrune-cap-martin, "Le parc des oliviers”.
In 2015, after graduating from High school, Tricia would start traveling the world seeking new inspiration. Shortly one year later in 2016, she now has found herself a new home settling in the City of Angels, California dedicating her craft and spreading her name world wide.
