My name is Taylor Halterman and I am an artist currently living and working in Raleigh, North Carolina. I discovered my passion for art while in high school and from there decided to pursue my love as a career. In 2014, I graduated with an AFA degree from Wake Tech Community College.
The purpose of my art is to create inviting narratives in a visual format. Generally, my work takes the form of soft, natural compositions depicting animals, botanicals, and landscapes. I find my inspiration in nature, children’s books, and especially in my two dogs, Charlie and Belle (my constant companions). I work in a variety of mediums depending on what suits my mood and composition best, but prefer working in soft pastels and charcoal. I also enjoy watercolors, oils, acrylics, and polymer clay. My specialty is pet portraiture, which takes the form of original drawings, paintings, and sculptures. I work from photographs and life (with the occasional imaginative embellishment) depending on the subject of my work.
