Colleen McGuire is a professional artist whose work focuses on domestic interiors and scenes from ordinary life. Her process involves careful observation and attention to composition and light in order to emphasize painting’s traditional use of light and illusion. McGuire’s work relates to early modernist painters such as Hopper and Vuillard.

She received her B.F.A. from SUNY Purchase and her M.F.A. from Western Connecticut State University.  In addition to her Studio Art courses at WCSU, McGuire has also taught at Southern CT State University.
