Cackie Trippe McCarty
PHOTOGRAPHY | GREETING CARDS + ORNAMENTS
Cackie Trippe McCarty was born and raised on the eastern shore of Maryland and had the good fortune to grow up in a home that had the best of two worlds: the woods and the water. As a child, the natural world became a powerful source of inspiration, comfort, and awe. Unaware at the time, this environment led her to become visually driven.
An art history major, she became passionate about photography. As a lifelong introvert, she turned her natural penchant for being an observer to good use. For her, a picture tells a story without having to find words. She came to Richmond in 1975 and has resided in Ginter Park since 1995.
In 2009, Cackie started her own line of greeting cards, Glittermoon Cards, based on her photography. She has been an artist in residence at Crossroads Art Center since 2011. She is also the creator of Glittermoon Vintage Christmas, unique designs made from vintage ornaments and decorations. When not making art in her home workshop, Cackie is either on the show circuit, in her garden, or dreaming about a trip abroad.
