Taylor Crowe speaks of life and art

In an article featured in the Huffington Post, Taylor Crowe, a 29 year old young man with autism from Cape Girardeau, Missouri shares how an early interest in art and animation resulted in him being accepted into and attending four years at the California Institute of Arts.

He gives a detailed account of how art helped him transition from a world consisting of self contained classrooms to an inclusive one in which he learned the skills necessary to make and maintain friends.

Nowadays, as an artist, Taylor focuses primarily on portraits and landscapes. He also has a career as an inspirational speaker and maintains his personal website. In his spare time he has written and illustrated a children’s book manuscript about autism.

The art presented here is from Taylor Crowe’s collection and is shared with his permission.  We encourage you to visit his website to learn more about him and his work.

  1. Beautiful! Very reminiscent of Vincent van Gogh. The use of saturated color is deeply emotive and inspirational. Keep creating your amazing art!
