About Taylor

Taylor is a Bahamian artist who is currently completing her tertiary art studies at the Savannah College of Art and Design, where she is now in her Sophomore year.

 

She is pursuing her education and career in Illustration due to her love of telling and displaying stories. Novels and stories have always grasped her attention, but she is most fascinated by the ability to create a story without words, just art.

 

She has completed the International Baccalaureate and worked closely with her mentor following her I.B. studies. Alongside renowned local artists such as Angelika Wallace-Whitfield, Taylor has created murals to beautify local businesses on her island of New Providence.
