a word from taylor
I’ve always found myself intertwined in two worlds. On one side it’s the world of art and on the other it’s animals. Combining the two together has been my goal for many years now. I am often asked why do I create works of art around animals and nature? We take this world for granted daily. This planet gives us beauty, a sense of wonder, curiosity and humanity. Let’s stop from our hectic lives for a little while each day and take in what is all around us. We shouldn’t forget how closely we, as humans, and animals are connected. Think of what this planet would be like if these creatures were gone. We have a responsibility to ourselves, our children and our home to care for nature and all of her creatures. Letting others see how I view wildlife is only part of my work, the bigger impact is how I can help this world heal through art, education and example. Let the adventure begin.

In 1996 Taylor moved to Nevada from Michigan with her mother. Not knowing where the road would lead them, they came to Las Vegas with $200 in their pocket. After being enrolled into an art class after school at the age of eight Taylor grew fonder of the process of creation. Facing many difficulties as a child, art helped her move forward with her life through creation.
Throughout high school she was involved in the art field. Having her work shown in school art shows gave her the drive to go full force with a career in art. Mostly self-taught, Taylor's heart lead her towards her other passion, wildlife and the environment. Creating images of earth and her creatures gives her the freedom to spread the word of conservation through bright vibrant colors on paper or canvas.
As of April 2013, she has had the honor of working with Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary in Imlay, NV. Wildlife protection is extremely important in her work and being able to be involved with an organization that saves neglected and abused animals is a true honor. There are currently pieces displayed on site at Safe Haven. Pieces have sold to supporters of their cause since April of 2013.
In the spring of 2015, she also partnered with WildCat Ridge Sanctuary to also help support their residents with her work.
