Spiced Tea by Betty Mckee
Betty McKee is an Atlanta-born artist who came to the Jacksonville area with her husband’s Naval service. Her interest in art emerged from a desire to illustrate Clay County churches and historical sites in pen and ink. As an outgrowth from pen and ink, she studied calligraphy for several years, attended two international calligraphic conferences, and engaged in a year-long study with Reggie Ezell. She eventually traded the pen and paper for brush, canvas, and acrylic paint. She now enjoys the challenge of oil painting. Most of her work is in the still life genre, with vintage or everyday kitchen items as her favorite subjects.
Betty’s art intends to imbue a sense of order and tranquility. She expresses this quality with images of simple things that we use or come in contact with almost daily.
Betty’s work has won numerous exhibition awards through the St. Augustine Art Association, the Art Guild of Orange Park, the Jacksonville Art Guild, and Florida State College at Jacksonville. Her work has been commissioned by major corporations such as Lockheed, GMAC, Wendy’s, JoAnn’s, and local schools. Her work hangs in various private homes.
