Kristen Taylor - Artist 

Kristen Taylor is a painter based out of the Pacific Northwest. Born and raised on Bainbridge Island, Kristen has been painting and drawing since as far back as she can remember. She has always been inspired by her surroundings, mainly her mother’s flower gardens. Picking bouquets for her grandmother and selling flowers out of the bus shed are among her favorite childhood memories. Kristen is primarily a self-taught artist but her father, a woodworker and artist himself, has always been her best critic and her biggest fan. Kristen followed in her mother’s footsteps and received a degree in nursing in 2014. Now that she has established herself as a registered nurse, she can once again pursue her true passion, painting.

               

Kristen’s paintings are mainly acrylic on canvas and impressionistic. Her favorite subjects are faces, figures, and flowers. These subjects are representations of life and she is inspired by the feeling of bringing that life through her and back out onto the canvas. Her love for color shows in her work, whether it be in a subtle or prolific way.
