Taylor was born in January of 1989 in Warren, MI. In 1995, she moved out to Las Vegas, NV with her mother. The discovery of art lined up with her discovery of wildlife in many ways.
Always fascinated by animals as a young child, it only seemed natural that when she was to get creative with drawing or writing it was always animal based. The love for both never faded throughout her life.
From the ages of 9 years old â€“ 11 years old, Taylor attended private art classes after school. She worked with charcoal and pastels to start off with, always gravitating towards animals as her main subject. She continued to participate in art classes in high school.
After high school, the question of what to do next was the main one in her life. The passion for art was evident but the passion for continuing onto college was not. Unsure if that was the road to go down, she started working at a picture framing shop at the age of 19.
Being surrounded by more types of art only whispered the answers in her ear more. Simply put, donâ€™t give up what you love just because you arenâ€™t in college. As she worked on her artwork, the confidence to push towards a career in art built.
Over time, she started researching ways to put her love of wildlife art to work with helping wildlife conservation.
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.
