Taylor Powell is a 2nd Year BFA studio art student with a focus in drawing and painting. Inspired by her own life experiences, she creates drawings and paintings that challenge viewers psychologically through physical manifestations of internal states. She works in colored pencil, watercolor, oil, acrylic, and mixed media. She uses realism, distortion, and color schemes as tools in her process to make physical the emotions she feels internally. Using themes from her own identity such as relationships, chronic illness, and other physical and mental struggles as well, allows for a personal commentary on the experiences of young adulthood.
