ALENA GUEST

USA

Alena Guest enjoyed early success as a professional actress in television, live theatre and film before focusing her full attention on her first love, painting. After receiving her formal art training at the Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles, Alena was tutored by well known, abstract expressionist, Judith Hale. Painting seriously for over a decade now, Alena's signature style has emerged, Her engaging work begins with an acrylic underpainting, teeming with vivid color, Then, using pastel, gold leaf, or ink, she completes her pieces with resonating symbology. Working intuitively, Alena summons images that are universally potent as well as personally powerful. Being featured, at present, in a number of galleries and other prestigious venues on the west coast, Ms. Guest has acquired a loyal following who find her work to be "profound, sophisticated, provocative and soulful." Alena makes her home on the beautiful Mendocino Coast of Northern California.
