Artist Leslie M. Guzmán was born in picturesque Guatemala. She has a need to travel, to explore her passion for art by slowly photographing the world. She believes travel opens the mind to new worlds and experiences
Her love for art began with photography when her mother gifted her a camera at a young age. This love transferred into other art disciplines but never forgetting about photography. She loves continuing to learn new techniques as well as mixing the old with the new.
Guzmán has participated in exhibits nationally and internationally. Recently her Colorful Traditions piece from her “Fragments” series took first place at the Visual Art Alliance Juried Exhibit juried by Lester Marks. Another piece from the same series Justice for Genocide was part of the Holocaust Museum of Houston’s exhibit “GENOCIDE: Man’s inhumanity to Humankind” curated by Clint Willour.
Her artwork is included in private art collections in the U.S. and Guatemala she has also created commissioned works of art.
