Mixed Media — ‘It makes your mind work in a different way.’

Listen to the episode

Today, a visit with mixed media artist Kelly Taylor, whose work is abstract and inspired by her love of nature. I find it deliciously goozhy. The work looks to be built up of layers and layers of thickly applied paint, but as we’ll learn as she describes her process, there’s more than paint under there. And as for her tools, we’re talking everything from palette knives to dental picks. Kelly started her art life making collages, but over years of art making, taking workshops, doing residencies, and meeting regularly with likeminded artists in what she calls her tribe, she’s worked in all manner of media. “I’ve never wanted to be idn that little square of just doing one thing. …You have to be willing to experiment and make a mess, not thinking you’re creating a finished piece of art.”
