George McCartney

George McCartney grew up in New York City where his early interest in graphic illustration led him to attend classes at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

At this internationally acclaimed museum, he had the opportunity to develop his talent by studying and drawing directly from the master works of the world’s greatest artists.

George continued his art education at the State University of New York, earning his bachelor’s degree in 1997.  Since then, he has worked with various media in the fields of illustration and graphic design.  Over the years, his artwork has been featured frequently on the covers of Chronicles Magazine and in the pages of Guideposts. His work also has appeared in corporate publications and product packaging.

George established himself as textile artist beginning in 2002 at the request of his wife, Kristin, who was then working at the fabric company, Timeless Treasures, Inc.  Today, his illustrations can be seen on fabrics around the world.  You’ll find his cupcake design in Katy Perry’s popular music video, “California Gurls,” where it graces Snoop Dogg’s resplendent three-piece suit!  And his images of fire-fighters decorate Mickey Rourke’s curtains and bedsheets in the award-winning film, The Wrestler.

Today George frequently visits New York City to manage the textile side of his business, but otherwise he and Kristin reside in Cary, North Carolina with their children, William, Ronan, and Georgia.
