Anna B. McCoy


Anna Brelsford McCoy received much of her artistic training from her aunt, Carolyn Wyeth, who was N.C. Wyeth’s second oldest daughter. For many years, Anna’s studies consisted of routine academic exercises – such as painting spheres, cubes, and making charcoal studies. Her parents, John McCoy and Ann Wyeth McCoy, also nurtured her interest in the arts and she has devoted herself to painting full-time for several decades. 

Anna paints with minimal under-drawing and is adept with both oil paints and watercolors. Though she lives in the same area of coastal Maine where many of her relatives lived and worked, her body of work focuses primarily on portraiture and still life. In the words of her friend, William Matthews, “[Anna] has shown us who she is, where she lives, and what is important to her. We have been invited to this very personal place and we’re fortunate to be there.”
