Hailey McGuire was born and raised in West Virginia. She currently resides in Morgantown, where she received a BFA in Painting from WVU in 2020. As an artist, she is deeply inspired by the complexities of the human experience, spirituality, and trauma. By evaluating these things through art, she aims to create a safe space for reflection and healing. Rather than adhering to a strict set of rules or techniques, she allows her paintings to evolve and change over time, often incorporating elements of chance and unpredictability into the process. This approach creates a sense of movement and energy that reflects the dynamic nature of our world and the constant flux of our lives. Overall, she aims to create a sense of connection and empathy, reminding us that we are all in this together, navigating the unpredictable waters of existence.
