Taylor Pate

I am inspired by the human experience, emotions, and human form; and I believe art is the best form of story telling. My goal is to evoke feelings that the viewers can relate to, or maybe didn’t even know they had. I believe that each viewer can have a different reaction to the same painting.


I am a painter and student at West Virginia University. I grew up in Morgantown and have always known I wanted to be an artist. My art is motivated by story telling and expressing feelings. I have taken many art classes learning drawing, painting, pottery, sculpture, and graphic design. I have been in art shows, done many commissions and recently received a Creative Arts Scholarship to attend WVU.
