Vanda McCormick Works

Vanda McCormick

     As a native of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, the wildlife and nature of the Coast are major inspirations for my paintings and artwork.  I am attracted to dynamic color and using texture, patterns and layering to achieve a tactile surface to my paintings.  Having a background and degree in graphic design, I love the inherent beauty defined by simple monochromatic imagery, as well.  I want to show beauty in my work, but I also want to allow the viewer to take their own journey through my work and hopefully come to an appreciation for the work shown.

    I am a retired Art Teacher of 25 years in public schools as well as college.   I received a BFA in Graphic Design, and Masters in Art Education from William Carey University.  I have won numerous awards for my work, and my paintings hang in many locations throughout the United States and abroad.
