Colleen Guiney is an artist based in the coastal town of Port Fairy. She completed a Diploma of Visual Arts at RMIT in 2009 and has exhibited consistently since then.
Highlights include solo exhibitions at Boom Gallery in 2017, Pigment Gallery in 2009 and First Site Gallery in 2009. She has been a finalist in art prizes including the Cambridge Studio Gallery Life Abstracted, the MLC Acquisitive Art Exhibition and the Williamstown Contemporary Art Prize.
Guiney draws on her visual perspective and experience in design in everything she does. Her paintings are colourful and emotionally charged with influence from her surroundings; they reflect shapes and aesthetics that are linked to her everyday routines and the nature she immerses herself in daily. Alongside Guiney’s artistic practice she operates Drift House – an award winning boutique hotel – with her partner.
