“I paint to leave an imprint -- to re-create past triumphs, current disasters, and inspiring stories.”

Featured Studio Visit Artist, The Magazine, November 2018

Pop culture, Americana, punk rock—it’s all there. His experiences vary just as widely, and each, it seems, comes into play in his paintings, including a stint as a sign painter. All are entry points for stories. And when McCoy starts chopping it up, there’s always a bit of self-deprecating humor in the mix.
