Maggie Taylor: Digital Collage

Girl-in-a Bee-Dress © Maggie Taylor

Some of today’s images may look familiar to you, especially if you’re a fan of the TV show “Ghost Whisperer” where they appear in the show’s intro. Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Maggie Taylor has a BA  in philosophy from Yale University and an MFA  in photography from the University of Florida.

In 1996, after more than ten years as a still-life photographer, Taylor began creating her images digitally. Using flatbed scanners and Adobe Photoshop, Taylor creates unique digital collages that “transport viewers to dreamlike worlds inhabited by everyday objects.” Primarily a fine artist, Taylor also spends some of her time creating cover images for books and music CDs. Her commercial clients include Warner Brothers Music and Penguin Publishing.

Taylor’s work is featured in “Adobe Photoshop Master Class: Maggie Taylor’s Landscape of Dreams”, “Solutions Beginning with A” , and “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll . Her images are in numerous public and private collections including Princeton University Art Museum, The Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, Harn Museum of Art, University of Florida, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and The Museum of Photography, Seoul.  She currently lives in Gainesville, Florida.
