Meet Taryn

Sunflower Field

There are artists that can stick to one thing, and then there's me...I've always had a love for all things creative. From art to acting I had to have my hand in a little bit of everything. But as I got older, got married, had kids all those things that made me feel alive got pushed aside. I started to feel stagnant and stale. So, at the age of 44, I decided to go back to night school for landscape architecture while working full time and rearing my three wild boys. That was the beginning of me realizing I was created to create. There was sketching involved, design and even coloring. Strolling through Michael's one day, I grabbed some paint, brushes, canvas and began throwing paint--literally. The pouring paint movement was taking off and I really wanted to try it. I fell in love with the fluid expression because it pushed me beyond the surface. It pulled me into this visual journey of awe and wonder that was freeing, spontaneous and honest. I could lay down some burdens or kick up the joy. To create is a breath of fresh air that  stirs my soul and refreshes me. 

I create with my spirit and my hands, so know that when you purchase a piece, my feelings are poured out all through it. It's a porthole to a place of tranquility, optimism and bliss that overflow into the deep recesses of my heart. In other words, you've purchased  a whole lot of love.


Love the water. Hate to fly. Love dogs. Cats are okay but allergic. I am a certified scuba diver but will only dive in warm clear water--basically the Caribbean or Hawaii; Love the heat--80 degrees or higher for me please; Dark chocolate over milk chocolate. No white chocolate ever; I'm allergic to raw citrus--pineapple, orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime; I must sleep with my right foot sticking out of the cover; Favorite flower - Sunflower--they start small and grow strong, they find the light and they are just happy; and, I love Jesus--one of my favorite verses is Proverbs 16:3.
