Laurel Lake McGuire came to Idaho from Gloucester, Massachusetts by way of Virginia, Florida,Washington,North Carolina,California, Wisconsin, Hawaii and Louisiana…packing up her paints and brushes and following her Marine husband to each duty station. Although this played havoc at times with continuity of her career in art, it also brought new subjects, new color choices and the support and fellowship of artists all over the US. Now settled in Boise, ID, she is intent on continuing to develop her skills and insight.
Ms. McGuire is a member of the Idaho Watercolor Society where “Heat Lightning” was awarded the Idaho Power Purchase Prize in 2018. In 2017 “In the Spotlight” was awarded Best in Show by Women Artists of the West of which she is an Associate member. Her paintings have often been awarded honors at the Western Idaho State Fair. Her work is at Art Source Gallery in Boise ID and Gallery 55 in McCall ID.
