Ann Marie McKay prefers oil for landscapes, but she also uses pastel and watercolor for colorful interpretations of people, places, and still life. She used watercolor to illustrate three children's books: Hungry Mr. Gator, Mr. Gators up the Creek, and Mr. Gator Hits the Beach. She has studied with several local artists, and she continues taking workshops to hone her skills. Ann Marie is an exhibiting member of the Charleston Artist Guild, as well as the Mt. Pleasant Artists Guild. In addition to original paintings, she has prints available upon request. She also accepts commissions.
