Creativity is A Gift
I have a creative nature. Always exploring and trying new things.
My art is often sparked in the heart by a piece of music, a writing, a photo or a personal experience. Much of my original art starts with a vision while meditating, standing in the shower, sitting in nature or dropping off to sleep.
It’s a Divine Gift to Be Creative!
Canadian Artist, Linda Diane Taylor describes her art as taking an idea or a vision to the canvas and molding colour and dimension to create a message, a question or an emotion. Her influences come from the old master oil painters, tribal designs and visions. Her style is eclectic, ever changing and developing.
In her portfolio you’ll find amazing abstracts, pet portraits, personal portraits, ideas from visions, tribal designs and copies of old masters.
She makes drums for other artists to paint and develops her own designs and personal designs for others.
If you visit you’ll see crafting and wastes turned into high quality art.
In the late nineties she painted indoor wall and ceiling murals paintings in the homes of the ‘Street of Dreams’ in Coquitlam, British Columbia. From 2010-2014 she volunteered for Lions International. She recruited artists and oversaw the art projects of the Birch Bay Hostel.
