Born in 1971, Tim McGuire was raised in Buffalo, NY. In 2008, he left his career as a kindergarten teacher in Los Angeles to pursue painting full-time in Florence, Italy. McGuire's work has been exhibited in the United States, The United Kingdom, Italy, Russia, and Canada.
"In my work, I explore joy and possibility. I show the world to the world as translated by me. I happily embrace the shapes and colours that emerge as I work. I revel in the pure delight of creating something new."
