Artist Kathy Taylor listens to her canvases. Her abstract horse paintings emerge from her acrylic washes, paper and ink and, to hear her tell it, of their own accord. These stunning equine depictions conjure themselves with desert themes, the Old West and Native American myth.
Taylor wants to bring her art to those who want to invest in a showstopper and to folks who want to rein in their spending this holiday season. She has limited edition gift boxes from her sought-after Spirit Horse, Guardian Horse and Earth Horse series for $45-$95. As you hit the trail seeking an enduring gift for a horse and/or art lover, even for those famously tough-to-please, consider Taylor's stunning, hand-painted boxes.
Taylor has a devoted following of art collectors and students. Her work is shown in local galleries and nationwide. She can be found teaching beginning and advanced artists most Tuesdays and Wednesdays at Studio 6020 in North Phoenix.
For those seeking gifts with a more traditional or spiritual theme, Taylor has designed “Objects d’Art,” hand-painted, solid wood sculptures that are both contemporary and reflective.
