Carl McKinley – CKAG Member

 As a teenager, Carl began painting in oils, then turned his talents to watercolor and acrylics. His artistic interests gravitated to wildlife painting and pastoral scenes because of his love of the outdoors and nature. Realism, color, and accuracy to details are his trademark. He is self taught and says, “Any talent that I may have comes from God.” Carl has paintings in several states, and his original painting, “Four Friends” (3 native American boys with a bear cub) hangs in the Beringer Crawford Museum in Covington, Ky.

Carl is a juried member in the Central Kentucky Art Guild, the Louisville Artisans Guild, Visual Artists of Bullitt County and Kentucky Crafted: The Market. He is the recipient of The 2007 and 2013 CKAG ‘Artist of the Year’ award.

His gallery is located in his home at 12 N. Sunset Ave. Cecilia, Ky. 42724 where he has available original paintings and prints of his artwork. (Various subject matter). He also does custom picture framing at reasonable prices.
