About / CV

Julia Ann Taylor is a painter, sculptor, performance artist and fashion designer based in Asheville, NC. No matter the medium, her art is rooted in the powerfully feminine, untamed, and emotive Body, and emphasizes the mysteriousness of womanhood, sensuality, and the darker, primal sides of the psyche. Vibrant and bold, Julia’s painting style is distinguished by it’s uninhibited brush-stokes, and an intuitive sense of gesture and color. Her most recent watercolor and gouache series “Pregnancy,” is inspired by her own pregnancy and expresses the potent and awe-invoking experience of bringing new life into the world. This series celebrates motherhood and honors all acts of creativity—great and small.
