Taylor Rose grew up in New Hampshire and was immersed into nature and wildlife by exploring the woods, mountains, and beaches nearby. Her imagination thrived in these surroundings and with an adoration for art at an early age she began to create characters and cartoons inspired by her childhood adventures. This love and connection to art continued through to high school and then college where she received a BFA in illustration from the New Hampshire Institute of Art. In her work she is constantly rediscovering her inner child to portray a world that beautifies nature and embraces the imagination process. Today she resides in Bend, Oregon where she works as a freelance illustrator and designer. When she is not making art you can find Taylor traveling by snowboard, bicycle and stand up paddle board. She loves fly fishing and has a somewhat healthy obsession with cartoons, hobbits, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and owls.
