Taylor Lee Paints About Gif

Taylor Lee is an artist, designer, and mental health advocate based out of Charlotte, North Carolina.

She is one of Honeybook's 20 On The Rise and has been featured in Design*Sponge, Badassery Magazine, and Spectrum News Charlotte. Taylor's work has been shown in both solo and group exhibitions across the country, and she has been an artist-in-residence at the Arquetopia Foundation in Puebla City, Mexico and at Artsplosure in Raleigh, North Carolina. She is pursuing her MFA in Painting at The Savannah College of Art and Design this fall.

Taylor’s work focuses on color, emphasizes shape, and combines different textures. She creates art aimed to inspire feelings of freedom, transcendence, and ultimately joy, uplifting her collectors’ spaces, moods, and lives. While Taylor is primarily a painter, she has recently expanded the scope of her work to include textiles, collages, and other media.

As a mental health advocate, Taylor works to raise awareness and reduce the stigma surrounding neurodiversity by being candid about her own journey with Bipolar Disorder and its role in her work. She is an official ambassador for advocacy group and clothing line I&I Outfitters, has collaborated with Project I Define Me, and is named as one of 35 Mental Health Instagram Accounts to Follow in 2019.
