Demonstration with Vicki Tara Taylor

Thursday, 19th October, 2023

This demonstration was given by Vicki Tara Taylor who is an intuitive abstract artist.  She shared her secrets on how she creates her textured and colourful artworks.

Vicki’s bubbly personality shines through in her colourful pieces using anything from a piece of string to a toothbrush, and beyond. Vicki’s works are all about mark making and enjoying spontaneity.

Such an enjoyable evening many thanks to Vicki.
