About the artist
Barbara Taylor has studied marine mammals for over 30 years and brings her awe of the natural world to her artwork. She remains a full-time biologist for the National Marine Fisheries Service located at their San Diego Science Center but has reinvigorated her artistic endeavors. This site has limited selections on the gallery pages and more artwork in the slideshows. Although most are privately owned, some are Available by contacting Barbara and can be seen on the Available page. While the Wildlife pages are true to title, the Landscape pages include other paintings. The Colorful-style pages include several different styles from fauvist to a new style that combines the transparency and color of watercolor with stylized motif of woodblocks.
