Responding with whatever materials are most suited to interpret the meaning of a place—from paint, steel, and cement to words and digital media—Taylor is driven by curiosity, location, and audience. She has been creating site-specific installations, murals, and paintings for over 40 years. Her work is in private and corporate collections from coast to coast, and in international locations from Kyoto to Paris.
With a B.A. in history from UCLA, Taylor studied sculpture and drawing at California State University, Sacramento, obtaining a master’s degree in studio arts. She was a freelance op-ed contributor to The Sacramento Bee from 2011 to 2018, and co-authored “Water: More or Less,” a 2016 book about water in California. She designed and illustrated “Frankenstein, A Graphic Interpretation,” in 2018.
Taylor was born in Chico, 20 minutes from Paradise, and raised in Sacramento. She now resides in the house she grew up in.
