This biography from the Archives of AskART:
GEORGE CAREY - ARTIST born December 8, 1942 – died August 6, 2010

George Carey is a fourth generation Key West native who is known for his artworks of his highly detailed acrylic depictions of the Key West area as well as the Ohio landscape and American Indians/frontiersmen. His artworks have sold at yearly shows in the Florida Keys and Ohio, exhibitions, as well as in numerous galleries for a number of years.

During his lifetime, George Carey's recognition came when Carey was chosen five times as a finalist in the national "Arts for the Parks" competition capturing four "Top 100" awards and one "Top Mini 50" award and was thrice recognized by the "Mystic Maritime Invitational Marine Art Exhibition" in Mystic, Connecticut.   He was considered a contemporary representational artist who captured the beauty, serenity, emotion and charm of the lower Keys in a bygone era - a time before T-shirt shops, fast food restaurants and tourist crowded streets - a time when true salt water Conchs called the Florida Keys home.

Carey's career began with drawing and sketching in the margins of his schoolwork as an elementary school student. Recognizing his love of art and his potential talent, his mother sent him to study with renowned artist Gerald Leake (a favorite of President Harry Truman) who conducted classes at the Ernest Hemingway house. With Mr. Leake's basics in hand, a wealth of natural talent, keen powers of observation and a discerning eye for detail Carey embarked full-time on an art career in 1985. Since that time, he was represented by a number of well recognized galleries throughout Florida and conducted numerous "one man shows" in and around his native Key West.

For the last 18 years of his life, George Carey lived in the Ohio Valley, first in Martins Ferry then in Wheeling.  He died on August 6, 2010.
