T.K. McGuire is a local Indiana contemporary artist and advocate for Art Therapy and mental health awareness. McGuire received her BFA from Herron School of Arts and Design with an emphasis in painting and psychology.
Continuing her education in art and psychology, she pursued research in the Art Therapy graduate program, and now dedicates her work to being an advocate for both art therapy and mental health awareness. McGuire describes her work as a process of catharsis and self-analysis.
To McGuire, the creative process of bringing art to life is multifaceted. She uses the process to “find answers to difficult questions, peace when … feeling off balance, and a love for life.” She describes what she creates as “contemporary and symbolic mixed media art inspired by nature and drawn from my own life’s experience.”
