This is one of my more recent mixed media/collage works, and one of my more calming, peaceful pieces. The body of the figure is heavily texturized using paper, etc...the use of orange and pink hues gives this work a warm, calm feeling and looks great mounted on a white background or matte. All work is sealed with a uv protective varnish and all collage elements are sealed with fixative.

I've always had an unexplainable need to create something. I love the idea that art is a piece of the creator's mind out into tangible form. I love simplicity in art. Art that proudly displays all the imperfections and keeps a rough/raw edge inspires me. Children's art and outsider art are amazing in that they are 100% genuine and honest. There is no pretentiousness in their approach. You tell a child to draw a tree, they draw a tree as they see it. There is no clouded thought behind their imagination, nor is there any limits on their creative approach and process placed there by art "instructors." I've been told by many art students that I'm lucky to be self-taught, and I agree. I wouldn't have it any other way. Everything I do, know, and understand about art comes from pure passion and an unmeasurable amount of of frustration, mistakes, joy, rejection, success, happiness, humbleness, and literally blood, sweat, and tears. I hope you enjoy. I have been part of many juried exhibitions, including the 54th Annual Delta Exhibition, and have pieces in numerous private and corporate collections all over the country. -Taylor
