Ready to Hang
The Kiss oil painting is 4 separate canvases put together to create one piece. The painting can be hung vertical or horizontal. The flowers symbolize the energy you experience in a first kiss.
My abstract and figurative works are richly symbolic, spiritual and organic. I count on the Art Nouveau style and artists Alphonse Mucha and Gustav Klimt among my influences. My work, however, carries an energy that is uniquely mine. Each piece reflects curiosity, exploration, youthful and novel view on the world; each embodies an inquiry – soulful, scientific, existential or otherwise. I draw on the mythological, the biological and the visceral for inspiration and guidance.
My name is Leah Guzman. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio. I am a Miami based dynamic, contemporary oil painter and sculptor. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio sculpture from Georgia State University and studied painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. I earned a Master’s degree in Art Therapy at Florida State University and became a Board Certified Registered Art Therapist. My experience as an art therapist has lent my work an air of singular vulnerability; my thoughts, dreams, musings and studies are exposed in full color for the viewer to absorb. Themes that resonate throughout my current work include spirituality, the heart and the mind.
