About the Artist

Artist Trevor Taylor at work

We get to dictate what our purpose is in life and I have chosen art. Drawing & painting allows me to touch an eternal conversation, to participate in a cultural tapestry that reaches back to the first man tracing his hand against a cave wall, and forward into an unknown future. Through it, I have a chance to create something greater than myself.

Born in California, raised in Colorado, living in Washington. An avid backpacker and rock-climber, When he isn’t painting, he’s in the mountains, enjoying the great beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
