Kathy Taylor is an American painter, born and raised in southern California during the tumultuous “60’s”. She credits the exposure to that time's endless change and bohemian lifestyle as the most significant influence on her journey as an artist. 

“My journey as an artist has always been about healing and spiritual development. The use of a symbolic horse to tell my life’s journey has a great reference to native American culture and spirit animals. In my case, the “horse” chose me and gave me the strength and power for my spiritual journey. Daily meditation was a link to the creative source and provided the time to “birth” this body of work. Each of the five paintings, collectively called “Singing A Higher Octave,” explores a metaphorical path to achieve inner freedom, leading to a symbolic rebirth. With this newfound freedom, individuals can glimpse a higher perspective as they journey to wholeness.” 

As an intuitive artist, Taylor’s work is created through gut instinct rather than an intellectual process. The imagery she uses, most often a horse, is a tool for exploring deeper issues and unwritten stories. Taylor also teaches a mentoring course in “Creative Development” in her studio, which she began over 15 years ago. Although she has a busy creative schedule, she continues to teach and mentor budding artists in unique  classes. 

Taylor’s work has been exhibited in the Southwest, the Pacific Northwest, and in European galleries. Her work is collected both nationally and internationally. 

Taylor currently resides in Phoenix, Arizona but still considers the beaches of southern California her home.
