Born in 1971, Timothy Andrew McGuire was raised in Buffalo, NY. He earned a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Elementary Education, and his teaching career includes more that 10 years as a kindergarten teacher in Los Angeles, CA.
With a penchant for drawing and painting that grew to become a preoccupation, in 2008, McGuire enrolled in the painting program at the Florence Academy of Art where he received a teaching scholarship in his second year and graduated in 2010.
McGuire has exhibited his work at Ann Long Fine Art in Charleston, NC, and the New Britain Museum of American Art in New Britain, CT. As well, he has presented several solo exhibitions in Florence.
McGuire currently resides, teaches, and paints in Florence, Italy.
