Leslie Anne Guinan
Mixed Media Painter

In my junior high girls were not allowed to take shop classes, so I carried my desire to take wood shop with me to adulthood. As an environmental lawyer in my 30’s, I finally took a woodworking class.
I loved working with wood and eventually quit my job and went to furniture school. I made fine furniture for a few years. In collaboration with my partner, I experimented with concrete and wood furniture and concrete work for the wall. I began painting with encaustic on concrete panels, eventually leaving concrete for lighter wood panels.
Furniture school trained my eye for balance, composition and design, but otherwise I am self-taught.
