Using Color, Composition, & Mixed-Media To Bring Awareness In Society w/ Denice Taylor Rinks: Artist Spotlight.
I was born Michele Denice Taylor in San Francisco, CA. I’ve lived in many states across the U.S. growing up. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in painting with a minor in photography as a non-traditional student. I attended college straight out of high school for three years, took a break to find myself, find my mate and have my son.
When my son was old enough to start school, I returned to the University to finish my degree. While finding myself, I worked as a graphic designer for a corporate ad agency and later left to become a freelance artist that has lasted for a total of 25 years. During this time, I formed my own business, Aesthetical Climate Studio®, which continues today.
I have been fortunate enough to sell most of my work both in the U.S. and internationally. I continue to participate in exhibits and charitable events throughout each year. I accept commissions as time permits. I’m always looking for ways to create work that will make a difference in some way and inspire others.
Denice is a multidisciplinary artist working with mixed media in painting, sculpture, photography, digital art, and graphic design.
My work focuses on the spirit within our mind and body and how we feel about life and experience emotions.
Each series focuses on a time period and expresses the wisdom gained from it. I use color, composition, and mixed media to portray the subject matter. Most of my work combines styles based on modern contemporary abstract with a visionary representation. This means I randomly put a lot of color on the canvas, and then I step back and see things in the paint to pull out.
Sometimes the piece just remains abstract. The color and brushwork are enough to tell the story. I also write my interpretation of each piece as the narrative to give you a general idea. It’s amazing to hear what others see within the paintings.
