Sean Maher was born and raised in Arlington MA, and he still resides there today.
Maher holds a BA in television production with a minor in fine arts. In school, Maher focused on drawing and photography. He began drawing a series of penguin drawings, called the Guins, in 2010 when he started to incorporate them into advertising signs for the farm stand he worked at, showing the penguin characters in a variety of entertaining scenes. Since then, the series has grown tremendously, and the Guins images have been reproduced on t-shirts, cards, tote bags, & aprons. In addition to creating drawings and paintings of the Guins, Maher also enjoys creating soft sculptures using both sewing and felting techniques.
Maher’s work has been exhibited at the Gateway Gallery.
