Giorgetta Bell McRee, Barnstable, MA Member Since March 2012 Artist Statement I am an artist/photographer/graphic designer currently living on Cape Cod, MA, with my husband Leo McRee (a landscape painter) and two Italian Greyhounds.
Photography is one of my many passions, and I enjoy experimenting with image manipulation in Photoshop. I also enjoy working in acrylics, pastels, and pencils of all description. I love to draw, paint, and photograph all subjects, but my favorites currently are flowers and the environment.
I received my fine art and graphic design education at Pratt Institute in New York, and Peabody College at Vanderbilt in Nashville.
I began my commercial art career as a publication designer and illustrator, specializing in books and other print media, and have worked on staff as design director for major New York City publishers, subsequently stating my own free lance studio. I have received several awards for my work in publishing. My practice as a fine artist has always been parallel to my commercial art career. I have participated in numerous group shows in New York City and Nashville, and have also worked on commissioned pieces through the years.
My favorite quote is "Creativity is intelligence having fun" by Albert Einstein
I hope you enjoy viewing my work. Stop by often as I will continue to add more galleries and more images.
