About Me


I’m Kelly L. Taylor. I make paintings–combinations of curious objects, emphasized by light and shadow, sometimes accompanied by abstract expressionist elements.

A compulsively collected compilation of things antique and vintage, peculiar and nostalgic, fuel my fondness for preserving these artifacts, to tell their stories, in still life with oil paint.

My abstracts encourage you to question the validity of your own perceptions; my still life pictures prompt you to reminisce. Whimsical clowns, coquettish kewpie dolls, and other toys instill a sense of childish playfulness, asserting that there is still good among the wreckage.

A transplanted Upstate New Yorker, and former Bostonian, I’m a graduate of Guilford College in Greensboro, NC where I received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a focus in oil painting and an AB in English. Active in the Triad, North Carolina art community, I exhibit work in local galleries and participate in artist collaboratives. I’m currently a member of Delurk Gallery in Winston-Salem, NC.
