My name is Minnie Taylor, I’m a South Australian artist living in Adelaide. I have a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication and worked as a Graphic Designer for 15 years. My love for painting started soon after the unexpected passing of my mother. An art teacher friend suggested to try painting to help with my grief. I bought some art supplies and started to play. Joining The Sarah McDonald Artschool helped fine tune my skills in oils and reaffirmed that I wanted to paint. Eventually taking the leap from Graphic Designer to Artist, I painted in my kitchen for years and now have my home studio where I paint full time, I feel very grateful! Focussing specifically on still lifes. My ambition is for the viewer to have a little moment of awe when they first view my paintings. Emphasising the shapes and detail I see in glass, highlighting colour and light refraction. I’m naturally drawn to detail, I get great satisfaction in painting it! My ultimate goal is to produce paintings that are aesthetically pleasing to look at and bring a sense of calmness to one's home!
