Artist Bio

Derek McCrea

I was born in Albany, Georgia on February 19, 1969.  I first started painting with oils in the summer of 1984. From 1985 to 1986 I painted under the instruction of Jimmy Peterson, a well known artist from Georgia. In 1986 I won 1st place in the Georgia Arts Exhibition. I joined the United States Army in 1987 and continued self study and painting on landscape subjects in France, Holland, Germany, Italy and Hungary. I only recently picked up the watercolor medium when my wife bought me a watercolor set on my 32nd birthday. I fell in love with the effects and quick drying time for watercolors. I use only the finest Winsor and Newton paint and Strathmore watercolor paper for all my works. I presently have paintings in over 25 private galleries in the United States and Europe. Numerous arts and craft stores in North Carolina and Georgia now show and sell my art. I am presently participating in several art competitions in North Carolina and on the world wide web.
