Timothy Taylor

Timothy Taylor was born in Philadelphia, PA, and raised in California.  His mother was of Italian and Irish descent, and father was Austrian/English origin, a descendant of Zachary Taylor.  Both his parents earned their degrees while Taylor was growing up, and he saw his father develop a law career, and his mother become a high school principle.  The value of education was instilled by their example.  However Timothy wanted to study art, and struggled with the idea that artists in America have a hard time of it financially.  Unable to solve his dilemma, Taylor majored in both chemistry and art in college, and from art graduate school he went to the George Washington University Medical School.  He showed his art throughout high school, college, and med school.  While at George Washington he took electives in art and music, and was welding bronze sculptures in the parking lot shop early in the morning and on weekends with his art professor, who understood the need to make art.  Since medical school, Taylor has continued making art, but now travels to residencies outside the USA so he camn concentrate without propaganda and distractions of American culture.  He finds exposure to artists in other countries to be the best education available.  As a doctor, Taylor has had a rough time of it, paradoxically, as being a humanities major in med school was an admissions experiment gone awry.  The pictures here are a set of a few small pieces of plaster art, which holds up well over time and are easy to send, and some are available for exhibition.  Taylor was the designer and sculptor of the Nashville Imaginarium Children's Museum, and has made larger artworks, but here proposes to exhibit a few very small, hand size works.  This summer Taylor is a guest at the International ceramics Studio near Budapest, and in 2007 was a resident at the Ascea, Italy.
