Who is Art Taylor?
Hi, My name is Tom Taylor, also known as Art Taylor. I am a artist, born in Detroit, raised in Hamtramck, MI.
Who am I? I am a Father, a brother, and A Son. I am an artist, a teacher, and student. A chef, a warehouse worker (for the time). I am an Owner, an Employee, a manager. I am a sculptor, a painter, a dreamer, and a doer. I am an inquisitive human being searching for truths, Hoping to educate the generations, while learning as much as possible along the way.
My first recognition as an artist came in 10th grade when I won the MASC Logo Contest, and my design was used as the logo for the Michigan Association of Student Councils, until the next contest. My next was the Hamtramck All City Art show, where I won 1st place. The following was when I was approached by the Drama Club directors and asked to create a set for their play. I achieved that as well getting credits as being the art, stage, and lighting directors (three positions I learned while doing, and teaching others to do).
I received a scholarship to Sienna Heights University, though I never attended. I chose instead to move to Florida to help my father with his business, and attended Valencia Community College taking classes in Art, Early Childhood Education, and Secondary Education.
Over the past 22 years, I have been fortunate enough to sell my custom artwork across the country, from Detroit to Orlando, to Portland Oregon and many stops along the way. And have worked with some great artists and crafters along the way. Now I want to teach others draw, paint, sculpt, carve, or build their own art, and go for their own goals. Thank You for taking the time to visit my page, I appreciate you, You Matter!!! Tom3
