Donell McCoy, April’s Featured Artist

posted: 35 month ago by Becky Henderson  |  No Comments ;

Donell McCoy, a Parsons, West Virginia native, had her art interest piqued at a very early age by her Mother who was also an artist and teacher. She has been seriously involved in watercolors for more than 2 decades and has particular interests in still life and architectural structures which are the subjects of many of her paintings.
Her sense of perspective, use of contrast, and extreme attention to detail now result in a true style of realism. Much like many artists, she is constantly aware of her surroundings, is fascinated by the changing light around her, and captures many subjects for future paintings with her camera, which is rarely absent from her side.
She has studied with local artists Kay Gillispie and Lotus MacDowell, and continues to develop her style by taking workshops that have included Bill Vrscak, Joseph Bohler and Betty Carr.
Some of Donell’s images are framed and can also be found in small, matted pieces and note cards. Please contact the Gallery for more information.
