Hallie Rose Taylor's imagery is focused on themes of wilderness, conservation, and the overall spirit of life on earth. Used as a lens through which to explore the world around her, Taylor strives to translate what she learns through both her outward and inward explorations onto paper. While her work is centered on the natural world, she's also influenced by traditional symbolism and personal dreams. A woman of many interests, she is inspired most by science, psychology, mythology, story, and the outdoors.
