Taylor, MS

My art is a form of expressionism, sometimes abstract expression. I seek pure visual satisfaction and try to put serenity and simplicity in my paintings. Color, texture, and simple shapes are used to create harmony. Often I use symbols to speak to the viewer. I believe that all living things have a connection, not just in the time of their life, but in a linear fashion. My art is a means of intimate expression and I hope that all of the images and symbols which I use will reflect my love for a certain feeling. My goal is that my paintings will evoke that feeling by simply being around. I strive to stay enchanted with nature because the world with so much knowledge and technology and science are inadequate in keeping that enchantment.
