Maribel Guzman

Born in El Salvador in 1966, Maribel Guzman currently lives in San Francisco’s Mission District and has been working at Creativity Explored since 2001.

Guzman is focused and perfectionistic when in the studio, creating iconic drawings and detailed paintings, which combine figures and animals in dreamlike scenes. The subject matter typically tells a story, with family groups, lush gardens, or interiors, all drawn with a sure line and filled with vibrant colors. Her narrative style translates well to other media, including embroidered textile works and ceramics.

In 2008, Guzman was one of four artists chosen by Recchiuti Confections, one of our community arts partners, to adorn their Artisan Series of chocolates.
