A Vote for College!

Angela Taylor, a fabulous artist and member of WWAO wrote to our group today:

All of us create our marks in different ways. My dream is to go to college to make that mark. I got accepted into the Savannah College of Art and Design!!! As many of you know though, I am epileptic and paying for college, even for regular students is hard enough so I am asking for your help. I have made a page on Brickfish where you can vote on my entries to help me get a scholarship. The person with the most entries gets one. Although, there is no guarantee, at least it's a shot. Please vote for my entries to help me get a scholarship. You can vote as many times as you like. To vote just click the picture that you would like to vote on, then look on the lower left side and there will be a button to click saying VOTE. Confirm your vote and bingo!

Painting With Passion
Original Art by Angela Taylor

My interest in painting began after meeting a local artist and friend. She helped me learn about painting and inspired me to become an artist. Since then, painting has become my voice. It has become my way of coping with the hard situations that I face from having seizures.I started having seizures at 12yrs for unknown reasons.

I had about 7 seizures a day 100 a day at the most. After having brain surgery in June,2003,I only have them at night. I did wake up from brain surgery with my left side paralyzed but it was NOT permanent. Physical Therapy helped ALOT! I can not go without medications or they will start again. I started painting as Therapy after I healed from surgery. I hope that painting will help others to prosue their dreams of painting as I have been inspired to prosue mine.

My work is basically abstract in style because I choose to work with color and a more intuitive approach to painting. While looking at each painting you may wonder what I was thinking while painting. I assure you that every painting has a meaning. The ability to paint my emotions is what I find so therapeutic about art.

She is a very inspiring woman and artist. Now! Go visit her Etsy shop and fabulous artworks to help support her College Dream and acquire a fabulous piece of art!
