Fine Artist that loves making ideas reality. Comics, portraits, horror, cartoons, book illustrations, and even writing or editing.
An Open Canvas:
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Taylor Bielecki, a former student at Penn State University. I dual majored in Fine Arts and English Literature Studies and graduated in 2018 with both art and English honors. I was also a aspiring Paterno Fellow with the Schreyer Honors College.
I am a finalist from the Kennedy Center VSA Emerging Young Artists' program and Creative York's Juried show finalist in 2017.
Here you will find my drawings, oil paintings, watercolors, mixed media, and a good percentage of my art portfolio and art commissions.
I hope to utilize this website to display all of my works as I continue in my new studio at Spring City Mills Studios and to show my studies regarding Horror and the Macabre and the Carnivalesque as well as numerous other subjects as my art concentrations increase. I plan to become an author and illustrator or advertiser for films, bands, and the like.
This is my Open Canvas! Welcome, and I hope you enjoy!
Let me know if I can be of service, or if you have any questions about a work for sale or a commission request.
