Michael Guinane

"All time is made up of different moments.  Whether they are grand and remembered forever or small and easily forgotten, these make up our lives.  Capturing these scenes and taking the viewer to one place in a single moment in time is what inspires me to create these works."

Originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Michael moved to Columbus, Ohio in 1996 to attend the Columbus College of Art and Design, graduating with an illustration major in 2000.

Michael's paintings are created with watercolor and water based paints using a reduction technique involving multiple washes of paint to create layering and depth in a work. This style is able to show the subtleties in layers of a painting and allows the viewer to see deeper into the piece.
