Zoe Taylor


Contemporary Oils


Zoe works from a small studio in Worcestershire, she currently works in oil with cold wax on aluminium panel. She is inspired by the worked land and the skies here in Britain. She says, "These have made us who we are and are intensely emotional, powerful voices that are part of our very soul.  The skies are constant, yet ever-changing, the land responding to the cast light."
