Work Experience

MoPop Piano, Exhibition

July 2017

Ten artists, including Taylor, were chosen to paint scenes on pianos donated to the music festival. They had a few days to work on the pianos before they were placed along the riverfront for the patrons of the festival to admire and play. Taylor's piano introduced life and death existing together and thriving-- A skeleton shows off a devilish grin as the hands of the skeleton are placed in an open position allowing for the plants surrounding to spread their growth.

Scarab Club, Plein Air Exhibition

August 2017- September 2017

Multiple artist throughout Detroit gathered to get their blank canvas's stamped at the Scarab Club the morning of the show. Afterwards, each artist ventured out to paint on scene in Detroit and by 5 PM, return back to the gallery with their completed Pain Air painting to be hung up for the show at 7 PM. My painting in this show is a landscape including the bridge to Belle Isle from the dock at the Detroit Yacht Club.

Taylor and artist, SALAW, shared the honor of having a show together at the River's Edge Gallery in Wyandotte, MI. Both his artwork and hers took the audience back in time to tell stories of the past dating from the 1920s to the 1960s.
