Angela Taylor began working in the arts at 15 yrs old volunteering in community theatre.
She took voice lessons from voice teacher, Les Taylor.
The artists that she worked with and met inspire her even today. Due to her health, she turned to visual arts in 2004.
She had her first show, "Turn Of Mind", with artist Mary Atkins in Pooler, GA.
Painting became very therapeutic for her. Giving her artwork away helped her learn to let go. Helping others gives her so much satisfaction that it helps her in return.
Over the years she has donated artworks to the United Way, Tybee Arts Association, Interfaith Hospitality Network, The American Legion Auxiliary, The Savannah Children’s Theatre, American Diabetes Association, Hospice, Young Survival Coalition and many more!
She became a contributing writer and editor for ACEO Magazine on July 1st of 2007.
She had her first solo show Perspectives, held at the Jewish Educational Alliance, on Feb 4 thru 29, 2008.
When in the yearly I Have Marks to Make show held at the Jepson Center of the Arts in Savannah, Ga. she overheard someone remind another not to touch the artwork. She then got the idea for touchable art to help the blind and created “Touch and See” (a feel for the arts) in 2010.
This later became an Artshow and Gala held at Brockington Hall in Savannah, Ga. to fund-raise for the blind in 2011.
She also owned ACEO Magazine by this time and decided to give others the opportunity to feel the reward in giving.
Having been bothered by the feud between ATC artists and ACEO artists, Angela created Art Cards United in March of 2014. Art Cards United gives each artist the opportunity to choose whether to trade or sell. Choosing to donate also gives them the chance to help others.
On September 22nd, 2014 Angela had an art exhibition for recycled art held at Chatham County Recycles in Savannah, Ga.
In October, 2017 Angela was in the Short-n-Sweet Concert Series at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Savannah.
Angela Taylor is a proud sponsor of Playing for Change and a member of National Museum of Women in the Arts!
Angela loves to pass on the message not to give up and to live while you're here.
