Kirily Taylor is a mixed media artist using tissue paper, acrylic paint, pencils and chalk pastels to create her art.
The tissue papers she uses are individually hand-printed using leaves, flowers, seeds and plants. These materials are collected on the coastal bush paths near her home.
Kirily is inspired by nature and the observations she records of the natural environment. The colours, shapes and the intricacies of patterns are incorporated into her landscapes or botanical abstract artworks.
Kirily is based in Auckland, but is a regular visitor to her grandparents former home in Napier. This is now a family holiday destination and additional source of inspiration for her artwork
