NAME: Taylor Ann Ivester
LOCATION: Henderson, Nevada (United States)
DID YOU HAVE ANY FORMAL TRAINING?: No
SUBJECT OF CHOICE:
Mainly big cats, tigers tend to be my favorite subject. They are unbelievably majestic. I could honestly draw any big cat at any point with such joy. They are captivating and at times, mysterious animals that intrigue me on many levels. However, I enjoy creating works for many types of animals.
MEDIUM OF CHOICE: Pastels, Charcoal and Colored Pencils
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?: Mainly big cats, tigers tend to be my favorite subject. They are unbelievably majestic.
DO YOU HAVE ANY ARTISTIC AMBITIONS THAT YOU ARE WORKING TOWARDS? IF SO, WHAT ARE THEY? :
I am currently focused on working more closely with not for profit wildlife sanctuaries. I have been partnered with one since 2013 (Safe Haven Wildlife Sanctuary) and another since 2015 (WildCat Ridge Sanctuary). Each animal has such a deep meaningful story that touches so many people. The way our partnerships work is I have permission to use their photographs as reference images to create portraits of their residents. When a work sell, 40% of the proceeds go back to the not for profit.Being able to work more with organizations like this to tell the stories of each resident with art is something I want to expand on over time.
Artists for Conservation Exhibit from September 27th, 2019 – September 29th, 2019 Art of Safe Haven coming in June 2020 at Alpha Voyage Gallery
