ABOUT LEIZELLE

“I was always inspired to draw, paint and make up stories, my home country Trinidad, is filled with a rich culture full of colourful characters, folklore and history. Design always felt natural and it consumed most of my time as a child. My granny would attest to this since my canvas was diverse and included her table spreads and her newly sewed dresses. Ha! Those were great days.
I also love writing and illustrating and my dogs.

I worked in Advertising for nine years at two agencies, McCann Erickson and Saatchi & Saatchi. I won 20 local and international awards from our local AAATT to The Addy Awards. Life in advertising was an exciting rollercoaster. You learn a lot about yourself and what you’re capable of under pressure, it shapes you as a professional, it surely shaped me as an artist and made me appreciate the concept of time and work I care about.

My intention is to create work from the heart that will be remembered.”   (Source: Leizelle Guinness on Behance)
