Darice Machel McGuire is quickly gaining a solid reputation as a recommended artist to watch. Her Hawaii and California landscape oil and acrylic paintings are gracing the homes and offices of collectors nationally and internationally. Darice’s choice of subject matter comes from her love of nature and all that surrounds her on a daily basis. She paints in large and small formats. Her miniature works start at the size of 2 x 3 inches.
Her childhood years were spent shadowing her mother who has been an avid creator in sewing, cake decorating, flower arranging and oil and watercolor painting. A move to North Lake Tahoe in the mid 70′s while still a teenager brought an opportunity for her parents to open an art gallery, Lakeside Gallery. The gallery housed an art supply store, frame shop and classroom. Darice has spent over 35 years working and learning the art trade from all aspects. Her skills include selling fine art and art supplies, custom framing and teaching.
Now the owner of her own art school, she continues her passion for the arts. Art E Studio was established in 2002 teaching the fine art of oil and acrylic painting to children and adults, passing on the passion and tradition her mother started many years ago.
Darice’s miniature paintings are represented by the Village Galleries gift shop in Lahaina and at the Ritz Carlton in Kapalua and Kaukini Gallery in Kahakuloa. Her larger works can be viewed at www.daricemachel.com. Darice’e art school can be found at www.art-e-studio.net
