Rebecca Guay is an artist known early in her career as an illustrator, commissioned for work. Guay received a degree in Illustration from the Pratt Institute in New York City in 1992. She subsequently turned primarily toward gallery work, opening her first solo exhibition in 2013.
After 2011,Guaye began focusing primarily on large scale gallery work done in oil. Her gallery work focuses on the figure with the goal being a strong emotional connection to the audience. Her pieces have since been shown and acquired by private collectors and several museums, including the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art and the Museum of American Illustration at the Society of Illustrators in New York City.
Guay has been an instructor at the Pratt Institute and a guest lecturer at the Savannah College of Art and Design, University of Massachusetts, Rhode Island School of Design and the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art. Guay is also the creator of two professional mentorship programs. More on Rebecca Guay
