Maude Robin McCoy has been painting her entire life. She grew up amongst the Wyeth family of painters, as the youngest daughter of John McCoy and Ann Wyeth McCoy. She was never far away from the act of painting, and once remarked, “All those years I wasn’t painting, I was painting in my mind.”
McCoy studied drawing in her father’s studios, who in turn had studied with her grandfather, N.C. Wyeth. She also learned from her aunt, Carolyn Wyeth, but there was much that she simply taught herself. She paints in watercolor, and like her family, she is inspired by close observation of her surroundings.
