Linda J Taylor, Kansas City Metropolitan Area Member Since March 2013 Artist Statement I grew up as the oldest sibling in a missionary family that lived in Texas, Minnesota, Puerto Rico and Kansas City.
As a child in Minnesota, I loved the outdoors best of all. At age 10 my family and I moved to the tropical island of Puerto Rico, where I fell in love with its flowers, mountains, beaches and people. After 8 years we returned stateside and settled in Kansas City. I have never outgrown my love of God's beauty and my intense desire to show others the same beauty with the eyes of their hearts.
During my early years I painted, drew, quilted and devoted 30 years to stained glass design and production. I continue my artistic endeavors with digital photography, portraying the beauty of God's world.
