Carrie Taylor studied at Harrogate College of Art and Bradford Art College and was also taught by Jean Georges Simon - a Hungarian artist who had been a close friend of Bourdelle and Modigliani - who became an important influence on her work. She lives in St Just-in-Penwith, where her lifelong fascination for natural history is expressed in paintings recording her observations of hedgerows, moorland, water and rocks throughout the seasons. 'Each turn in a track or a lane reveals an intricate network of leaves and branches and each rock-hollow on the seashore, a secret world of reflections, pebbles and seaweed.'
Her work is exhibited widely throughout Cornwall and beyond.
