Mr. Frederick Guess

Fredrick Guess was born a sixth generation Floridian on April 21,1953 in Lake Wales Florida.

Guess says that he had no choice but to be an artist – it is just who he has always been. His parents, both of whom served in WWII, encouraged what they saw as his budding talent from an early age. His formal art training began at the University of South Florida. He went on to receive his Fine Arts degree from the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Illinois in 1975. He then returned to central Florida to study as the protégé of renowned artist Marilyn Bendell for three years.

In 1997 Guess decided to move to New Orleans, the city that held his imagination since his first trip here at the age of fourteen. He opened the Fredrick Guess Studio on world famous Royal Street in the middle of the French Quarter. Fredrick recently opened with his artist friend Bliss McCall a new gallery in the Arts District, the Guess McCall Gallery at 607 Julia St. In the studio, he enjoys meeting clientele from the world over, many of whom have become dear friends. He also has a wonderful time teaching workshops in the gallery and sharing his knowledge of painting.

Upon moving to New Orleans, Guess first lived in the French Quarter. There he fell into the rhythm of the city and immersed himself into its culture. He then moved to the Garden District and began to get a deeper appreciation for just how extensive the local culture has been ingrained into the area’s fabric. After ten years, Guess moved again, this time deeper into Louisiana’s unique aura. He now resides in the fishing village of Jean Lafitte, a small hamlet about twenty miles south of the city. Nestled in the coastal wetlands, he draws inspiration from the Cajun knack for joie de vivre and the environment’s serene waterways and picturesque settings.
