Carol Taylor-Kearney creates mixed media paintings and sculptures that are vibrant in color, adventurous in the mediums used, and playful in the open-ended stories or puzzles she presents.  Based on recognizable people, places, and circumstances, she adds a bit of imagination to collected debris to create worlds to touch and to visit.  Often, she takes advantage of combining real-life observations with art history and literature, and the subjectivity of time.  Taylor-Kearney wants observers to feel that they can find something new every time they experience the artwork.
