Born and raised in Birmingham, AL, Blakely Taylor now resides in Andalusia with her husband Riley and their two boys Hill and Bo and daughter, Frances. From an early age, Blakely always had a love and appreciation for art, taking summer art classes whenever possible. After taking a realism class at the Red Dot Gallery in Birmingham, she quickly realized abstract was where her passion was, allowing her to make each painting something completely different and unique. Blakely loves trying new materials and techniques, drawing inspiration from interesting color palates she comes across. Each painting she creates is unlike any other, it's always exciting to see how they start and where they end!
