The Art of Heather Taylor

Artist at Large Creating Masterful Pieces for All Ages and Audiences

About

Rhode Island born Artist with a vast passion for creating. Since a child I have always been inspired to Create. From basic crayons and paint to really growing into the artist I am. I move between mediums and always find ways to express myself. I started doing art shows when I was 20 years old. I didn’t wait to start doing art shows till the end of my college life so I jumped off. I also went against the grain and followed my own style only half listened to my professors who insisted on breaking down the student and put them back together with the main stream art style. Your basic Juxtapose magazine reading art student. I feel that art should be a extension of who you are. Not what everyone is doing now.

When I paint I let everything go. I never really know what I’m going to paint I just let the paint and canvas guide me. Before I know it I have a wild colorful background that screams the final answer at me. I have my secrets but I’ll share one. I sometimes cross my eyes and stare at the background. Like a magic eye illusion I start to see a image. BOOM… I paint what I see. I think it’s important to let whatever the image wants to be to it wants to be. So whether it’s a Snail, Fish, Naked Woman, or Musician they’re all welcome on my pallet. Since living in Colorado I’ve noticed my urban east coast graffiti influence has meshed with my now nature music vision. Funny how we evolve.

I’ve held many art shows.

I’ve also donated multiple art to various fundraising events such as the Denver Children’s Home. I try to help raise money for kids without homes to get what they need. I also helped raise money with my paintings at the Annual Humane Society’s Gala in Boulder CO.  I was recently involved with painting snowboards for a charity Burton was doing that helps kids who have disabilities partake in winter sports and I just donated art to the Nederland Firemen’s Ball.
