About the Artist

Artist Statement

Born and raised in South Louisiana, Taylor received her BFA in Computer Art and Animation from the University of Louisiana in May of 2018. Currently, she resides in the DC/Maryland area as an MFA candidate in Projection Design at the University of Maryland. 

I’ve dabbled in a few artforms throughout my life: drawing, painting, singing, songwriting, music, and acting. (I’ve tried dancing, but it didn’t work out too well). I’ve called myself a painter, an illustrator, and a musician. Recently I’ve added Projection Designer to my list. As I grow into myself, I realize that I don’t want to be a specific type of artist. I just want to be an artist. 

I seek to create experiences that send a jolt of energy through your spine and send you off with ideas and a vision for the future. My artwork is pleasing to the eye, but has strange twists and turns throughout. I feel that art does not have to be either beautiful or thoughtprovoking. I strive to create balance between those two qualities in my work. As a musician, singer, and actress, my visual work draws inspiration from other artforms. I find harmony and flow from music, energy and lyric from singing, and emotional depth from acting. My work thrives when well rounded.
