TAYLOR Biography

When she is not traveling through Europe, with pochade box and oil paints in her backpack, Marjorie Taylor can be found painting along the coast or canyons near her San Diego home.
  Marjorie combines her love of painting with her passion for travel and exploration. She has spent months painting in France, Spain and Italy, as well as throughout the western United States. Painting plein-air enables Marjorie to capture the atmosphere of a place, and brings authenticity to her work. When painting in the studio, she approaches the blank canvas with the same immediacy and spontaneity found in her plein air paintings.
  Marjorie Taylor graduated with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Art 1983. After a successful 14-year career, she resigned from her Graphic Design/Illustration business to pursue painting full-time. Marjorie studied oil painting under Lela Harty and has taken workshops with Kim English, Jove Wang, Ray Roberts, Carolyn Anderson, George Strickland, John Budicin, Mark Daily and Ned Mueller.
