Stephanie Taylor is a Whistler based artist working in oils.  She studied photography at the University of Victoria but made the leap to painting several years ago, focusing on West Coast landscapes including local forest, ocean and mountain views.  She uses a mix of impressionist abstraction and more realistic elements in her paintings to both heighten the emotional connection and anchor the viewer in a specific place.  She loves to bring her passion for the outdoors into her art and explore different ways of enhancing the light and beauty of our natural world.  Her large canvases are an excellent way to bring our wilderness environment into a living space and inspire people to both use and protect it.
