Biography

Marie Claire Taylor

I was born in the tropical city of Caracas to an esoteric artist mother and English father with a love for nature.
I grew up painting apples, cats and sunsets, making little tales and hand crafting gifts for my friends and love ones.
I studied graphic design, illustration, drawing and pottery, learning to express my ideas while exploring new styles, colours and shapes in different medias, both classic and digital.
I love creating new projects, and I made my first inventions and gift products with great success under the name of Taylor's Tales.
I have learned other disciplines, by connecting with different cultures and discovering ways of viewing the world, enhancing my own perceptions.
Currently I am working on a series of handmade paintings on canvas, inspired by nature and moods, giving life to spaces, walls, and rooms.
