About

Carol Maguire holds a Bachelor’s in Art History from Fairfield University and the Sorbonne, she has furthered her studies at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Barnes Foundation and Fleisher Memorial. Her passion results in painterly works saturated with color and joie de vivre.  Inspired by a love for color, textiles and gardening, her work focuses on objects that surround her daily life.

Maguire started painting full time and showing her work after 9/11/2001.  Her extensive travels have brought her to India, Peru, Romania, Guatemala and Honduras where she has taught her artistic skills to the indigenous women. She has worked as a consultant for the State Department where Maguire’s special skills involved identifying the materials available and the skills of the artisans…and blending them to design a program of products to make. She now teaches paintings workshops in Mexico, the Bahamas, Tuscany and at her home outside of Philadelphia.
