Artist Night at the Opera - Marjorie Taylor



After Marjorie Taylor earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in Graphic Art, she embarked upon a career as an illustrator and graphic designer. She designed promotional, educational and advertising materials for a variety of clients. Working with various educational publishers, she designed and illustrated children’s books, and designed college textbooks.

Marjorie was inspired to return to her first love of painting after visiting many great museums while on a bicycling odyssey through Europe. She then embarked upon a fine art oil painting education by studying with a variety of artists, at which time she began to paint en plein air. Seeking to combine her love of painting with a passion for travel and exploration, her plein air painting adventures have taken her across North America, Central America, Europe, Asia Minor and North Africa. She was invited to participate in national plein air painting competitions, had her award-winning work represented by a variety of galleries throughout the country, was juried into exhibitions at museums, universities and other venues. Her paintings are held in public and private collections throughout the USA, Mexico, Canada, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, Ireland, and Japan.

Marjorie is currently searching for new opportunities to synthesize her years of experience as a designer, illustrator, oil painter, teacher, and world traveler. Her goal is to find ways to use her art to help make the world a better place. She is currently teaching art to children at a foster home in Tijuana and continues to paint, while writing and illustrating children’s books.

She is a member of the California Art Club and the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. Please visit her website at www.taylorpaintings.com or follow taylorpaintings on Instagram.
