Sunny Taylor

At 23, Sunny Taylor is a veteran in the painting community, holding her first exhibit at the age of 13. Taylor's large-scale portraits capture the essence of real life people with real life struggles.

Born with Arthrogryposis caused by military pollution, Taylor describes her art as "portraits of people or ideas I love... an expression of what I call a love or appreciation of seeing." In her painting "Depleted Uranium," Taylor shows the effect of millitary pollution and war in the Middle East. But not all of her paintings depict such serious topics. One such work is a painting of her brother-in-law, Christopher, which she says captures a moment in time, the essence of a laugh. In 2004, Sunny Taylor won the VSA Arts Organization award for painting.
