This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following was submitted by the artist:

A painter in a variety of mediums such as oil, watercolor, acrylic and pen and ink,  McCrea paints in a whimsical impressionist style in plein air settings.

Derek McCrea is a US Army Infantry Combat Soldier with two tours in Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division, and this is his stress relief.  He has always loved to paint; it allows him to express emotions on paper and relax.   He was born in Albany, Georgia on February 19, 1969 and resides in Florida.

He first started painting with oils in the summer of 1984. From 1985 to 1986 he painted under the instruction of Jimmy Peterson, a well known artist from Georgia.  In 1986 he won 1st place in the Georgia Arts Exhibition.  Derek joined the United States Army in 1987 and continued self study and painting on landscape subjects in France, Holland, Germany, Italy and Hungary, painting in the plein air style.  Derek's works can be found in over 75 locations worldwide.  These locations include galleries in North Carolina, Georgia, Spain, France and Austria, frame and arts and craft shops in the Southeastern United States and numerous online galleries.  He won the artist of the week in August for Art Gallery Online while competing against 11 other artists.  He completed over 20 commissions between 2005-2007.

His art was selected for the cover of The Eclipse, a publication where poets write about the artwork of a selected artist once per quarter.  Six of Derek's works were selected for this publication. Derek's works were featured in LIA Life is Art Magazine in Aug 02. His last exhibition was in October 2002 at the Chateau Elan Vineyard in North Georgia. His works were featured in Lighthouse Magazine (June 04), Skyline Magazine (May 04), Shadow Poetry Quill (March 04), and New Works Review (March 04).  Derek has donated several artworks to non-profit and charitable organizations in the past, including in February 2007 to Christian Mission Hospital in the ward for HIV children run by Joyce Meyer Ministries in India.
