McGee Ferrell Bio 2013

After two decades of creating large oil paintings in the public, Ferrell decided to bring her Painting En Plein Air to the world audience via social networking. To date she has created 12 videos capturing painting on the streets of Philadelphia and South Jersey. Not only does she stand with a 4-by-5-foot hand-stretched canvas in a tourist populated Philadelphia location, but she wears ball gowns while doing this.

Her painting process has evolved into performance art connecting Philadelphia tourists to the icons within the city. People around the world can watch her paint the City Hall Occupy Philly movement or the Art Museum from the base of the steps.

She loves combining her classically rendered oil paintings with new technology and large audiences available through the web.
