With pencil and paint and photography she has developed a vital palette of colorful expression.
She is a long-time member of Bartlett Art Association, Artist’s Link, MidSouth Art League, and Memphis Camera Club, where she has been named Photographer of the Year multiple times. Becky McRae also created the original Lakeland City Seal that was commissioned under then Mayor William H. Howick.
