Real Character by Jay Taylor

Sandy, 15-year-old Shih-Tzu and my very best buddy, gazing at me lovingly with what’s left of his increasingly-declining eyesight. He is such a sweetheart :o)

An expressionistic, exploratory artist, I create without restraint or intent. I am a passionate advocate of natural learning, and this organic approach informs all of my work, giving my creations their vibrancy and spontaneity. An abiding love of nature keeps me going when my rather warped sense of humour fails. Above all, I reject the dysfunction and pain our culture perpetuates. More of the same is of no interest to me. I say “YES” to that which is life-serving: let a new paradigm emerge!
