Taylor Griffen Demarest, who is better known as Artist Taylor Anne, has been designing art professionally since 2013 when she started Taylor Anne Designs, LLC. A native of Lake Charles, Louisiana, she graduated from McNeese State University with a BA in Visual Art with a Concentration in Painting and a BA in Art Education.
A childhood of drawing paper dolls with her paternal grandmother and growing up in a large, Catholic, southern family led her to create the beauty she’s seen in the world. Her biggest inspiration for her art is the first Artist and Creator, God.
She is a wife, mother, and Impressionist artist that loves thick brush strokes and making the painting look like a painting rather than a picture. People notice that her art is different especially with the live wedding paintings. She doesn’t put faces on people because she sees an implied face with music, lights, and colors blending in the background when she looks out in the crowd. If looking at her designs brings you back to a special memory, even if it is the smell of the place or the feeling you felt, her mission is complete.
Taylor Anne is the artist and designer of Taylor Anne Designs which specializes in fine art, home decor, gifts, apparel, accessories, and much more. She also travels all over the south capturing couple’s wedding days as a live wedding painter.
Taylor Anne Designs is currently located in New Orleans, Louisiana with a store front at Zèle Nola on Magazine Street. Her designs can also be found online on her website and shops all around the South.
