Looking for some artsy inspiration on a grey cold afternoon? Here is inspiration for literally EVERYONE.
Meet Taylor. An artist I’ve admired since she was a small individual. That’s the way of think of Taylor. Sure, she was a once a child, but always so much her own person, even as a small person. Today, Taylor is a brilliant, beautiful young individual, who will be forever, an artist.
You don’t have to take my word for it. The proof is in her sketchbooks. Taylor began housing her wonderings, ponderings, drawings, and writings in a kind of living journal as a very young teen. She works in her self created sketch books to plan larger works. She explores her experiences with and in the world, in her books. Each page is an elegant small work of Taylor art.
Unfortunately, my photos do not do justice to her books. Taylor employs pop outs, little kinetic pieces, three dimensional incorporations, and folded surprises. Some pages are simply artfully designed pencil drawings, tatoo designs or poems. But each page is created with materials you would find in most households. No fancy art supplies.
So how about you? Inspired yet? If you need a little bit more of a push to get a sketchbook of your own going, look for “Portrait of a Girl”, my new book, coming in a few months. It features Taylor and many other young female artists who just might give you the affectionate kick in the pants you need to bring a personally artful dimension to your life.
