There’s nothing like a good story and that’s how I think of my paintings. They each have a story to tell. Throw in some western flavor and juice it up with a colorful background plot and you have a Faye Taylor.
Because I paint from real life, I paint in a realistic style, spicing it up with color, shape and value to keep things lively and interesting. My subjects are usually on the move, so I reference photos when I paint in my studio.
I started out as a fashion illustrator in 1980, but for the last 13 years I have traded fashion for passion…passion for the western figure and all else western. Living in Central Oregon cowboy country, many of my friends are also my subjects.
