Taryn's work harmonizes classic painting techniques with an innovative usage of obscure materials and found objects. Finding inspiration from almost anything, Taryn creates texture, depth, and excitement by incorporating and upcycling materials such as aluminum cans, fabrics, glass shards, drift­wood, metallic leaf, jewelry, and beach sand into her rich, colorful paintings.

Taryn was given a six-page spread in Local Hawaii Magazine, voted best Maui?s best local visual artist by the readers of Maui Time Weekly, and selected to be featured in the 2013 edition of American Art Collector.

It's her spirit, endless inspiration, and wild imagination that provide Taryn with limitless creative ideas and unique materials, but a classical foundation and fine-tuned skills that cohesively bring them together to create strong, exciting works of fine art.

Born and raised on the Connecticut coastline, Taryn earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in painting from Boston University in 2007. In addition to her BFA, she has studied fine arts at the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts, the Decordova Museum School, and abroad in Italy. Taryn currently resides on Maui, where island living feeds her boundless inspiration.

Taryn says...

"As a mixed media artist, my process involves many layers and a fine balance between structure and play. I refuse to get bored or become mechanical with a painting. Using a wide range of materials opens up my imagination into a whole new playground of possibilities and provides both a visual and tactile experience. I love experimentation and always welcome new ideas and materials into my work. Each piece is a new adventure for me.

I spend a lot of time observing people and nature, discovering unexpected brilliant moments of color & emotion along the way. Raw, candid, un-romanticized, yet beautiful, moments nearly always become the focus of my work.

I have been in a love affair with drawing and painting ever since I can remember. More than a passion, it almost becomes an obsession. I feel blessed that it is also my career."
