Elizabeth R. Taylor received her BA in Arts Applications with a concentration in Visual Arts from NC State University. Born and raised in North and South Carolina she has been painting since a young age: she won her first award in first-grade at the SC State Fair. Her compositions integrate unique combinations of bright colors, which create a design in motion. She is inspired by the harmony and contrast that colors can produce.
