She received a a Master of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art and Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and Psychology from Pepperdine University. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally at the CUE Art Foundation, New Mexico Museum of Art, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Muskegon Art Museum, Cranbrook Art Museum, Media Knox Gallery in Slovenia, Art Gallery of Windsor in Canada, Kunstverin Wolfsburg in Germany, amongst others.

Burack spends her time learning from the landscape, making and enjoying her family.
SFAI was an inspiring space to be in. It allowed us to work with new ideas and approaches to our practice, which led to new projects and forms.
