Jeannie McGuire

Jeannie McGuire - Figurative Design, Character is More
March 19-22, 2018 - 4 Days, Advanced Beginner to Advanced

Residing in her hometown of Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Jeannie McGuire began her professional career with a commercial graphic design and photography degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1974.  Twelve years with an international corporation were followed by a freelance graphic design business, portrait and figurative commissions, co-founding a co-op art gallery, and now, doing what she truly loves to do: create and compose paintings in a unique way.

Exhibiting Internationally, Jeannie’s work has been recognized in invitational exhibitions in the USA, China, France and Italy including a feature exhibition in the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Eugene, Oregon.  She has received many prestigious awards including the American Watercolor Society’s 144th Gold Medal of Honor for her painting, “Kenneth”.  Jeannie juries art exhibitions and gives figurative design workshops to artists, always encouraging a purpose for creating art.  Her original work and commissions are in both private and public collections and are represented in numerous art magazines.  She is a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, the Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and other select small groups. 

Jeannie’s strong figurative works in the watercolor medium invoke individual interpretation, communicating human character and situations. Her work is impressionistic in nature with an identifiable subject versus a traditional portrait.  Inspirations for her paintings come from her own photography, acquired snap shots, client and family photos and life drawings.
