About Harriet Peck Taylor

How lucky I am to live the artistís life. Iíve had the opportunity to stand on a wind swept mountain at dawn and Iíve watched stars shoot across an infinite moonlit night. Still, itís the birds and animals whoíve shown me sheer joy and helped me feel connected to the whole of nature, birds, animals, plants and sky, and people as well. It is such a great feeling when I can connect with others through my art.

A customer recently told me, ''I did want you to know how much your paintings sustained me and kept my spirit and soul warm throughout some of those very dark nights. I never realized what a role the right art in your life could play, but art really can be lifesaving, as yours certainly was to me
Your art taught me all about what a real relationship with art should be about. I had never really purchased original art but I am glad I waited and somehow when I saw your art, I just knew this was my perfect match. I was drawn to it so powerfully from my core, how it spoke to me and how I felt like I was somehow speaking through it as well.' I was so moved and humbled by Wendy's words. It is part of what inspires me each day.

Since part of my background is that of a storyteller, my art is narrative. Because of the many years Iíve spent hiking and camping from Arizona to Alaska, there is a story and sometimes an adventure behind each image. I feel most alive when Iím in wild places and the days spent there are etched deeply into my psyche; brilliant, bold, and animated. The presence of beauty keeps me humble and grounded and provides endless inspiration and joy. I hope that when you look at my art, youíll find yourself transported you to that magical place.

I received my BFA in Fine Art from the University of Colorado and have been working as an artist for my entire adult life. I am an award-winning author and illustrator of 7 picture books for children. My images have been licensed for use on greeting cards, posters, art prints, tiles, album covers, and gift wear that are sold worldwide. My art is in private collections and public spaces across North America and Canada.

Mine is not a naturalistís realism, but rather nature filtered through my dreams, thoughts, and fantasies. Primitivism and Folk Art from around the world have influenced my style for their use of stylized imagery and patterns and I admire Fuavism for its use of bold, whimsical colors.

A critic once said of my art that 'it pulses with the effervescent joy of color and creation...' and that thought sustains me. I hope that throught my art , I can share with you a tiny bit of the joy and mystery and sublime beauty that is out there.
