Manda McKay painting  

Manda McKay is a medical and veterinary illustrator turned painter living in Athens, Georgia. Manda’s paintings have been displayed in numerous museums and solo and juried exhibitions. Her artwork has also appeared on album covers for local bands. A love of nature is evident in her subject matter. Feathers, shells, bones, fruit, and flowers are arranged in bold, simple compositions. The influence of her former profession can be seen in her realistic technique, but unlike medical illustrations, her paintings are meant to persuade rather than inform.


She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and her master’s degree from the Medical College of Georgia. She then worked for two years as the veterinary illustrator at Auburn University's College of Veterinary Medicine before returning to Athens to freelance in veterinary illustration. She began painting still lifes in an effort to become a catalyst for change.
