“This new series of Pen and Ink drawings of Portland, Maine’s Old Port Architecture are inspired by my mother. Despite years of me painting in oils, my mother often comments that her favorite art pieces of mine are my pen and ink sketches. So mom…here’s to you!”

Erin McGee Ferrell. American Artist

Artist Statement 2015

Erin McGee Ferrell is inspired by architecture merging with landscape. The artist notices the spaces of sky and buildings between suspended electrical lines, seeking to paint the moments of sky that occur between the floors of a parking garage. Drawing is the foundation of her work as an artist. McGee Ferrell’s work may scream abstraction, but underneath adheres to visual accuracy and measurement. Addicted to adrenaline, the artist paints in highly public places where she is forced to paint fast and true. Recent work has focused on the merging of urban and coastal architectural structures in Philadelphia and Maine. McGee Ferrell is a natural entrepreneur who is determined to be an influential and important Contemporary American Artist.

 

Erin McGee Ferrell studied oil painting at Mount Holyoke College, Pennsylvania Academy of Art, University of the Arts Philadelphia, and The University of Louisville, KY. She has studied and created art in Italy and Nigeria. Collectors include TD Ameritrade, AtlantiCare New Jersey, Jones Lang LaSalle Americas, INC. Philadelphia, The Episcopal Diocese of Boston, the CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, and professional athlete Kimmo Timonen.
