Digital art & technology realizes the dream of the Impressionists to paint with light & with vivid colours. My digital paintbrush is a Wacom stylus using traditional photography tools like my medium format Rolleiflex & large format Ebony camera with digital tools. I believe the fragility of nature can only be captured in this new medium. The viewer is caught off guard as he/she is viewing nature from a new perspective and inspired to save earth, our home. "One perceives in it an intricate interweaving of ideas, as well as the confident use of the latest digital imaging technique." Edward Lucie-Smith, International Art Critic & writer
I was trained by my mother, Marjorie McKee, an abstract expressionist painter & influenced by her friends Jackson Pollock, Bill & Elaine de Kooning, Harold Rosenberg, and her teacher, Hans Hofmann. Her teachings of colour and form are the basis of my art.

I have been reviewed in Vie des Arts
and by Edward Lucie -Smith, leading British art critic who said:
"Alan McKee's work presents itself as a new phase in a long and distinguished development. One perceives in it an intricate interweaving of ideas, as well as the confident use of the latest digital imaging technique."
