|Location||Englewood, Colorado, United States|
|Introduction||My name is Kristi Taggart. I am an aspiring children’s book Illustrator. I find the art of story telling very interesting. I want my illustrations to be an expression of warmth hope love and joy. I grow up in a small town surrounded by a big city. Right along side the Colorado mountains. My world growing up reflected that of a “Leave it to Beaver” 1950’s type world. Girl scouts, My brothers high school band and foot ball team, small town paradises, Sunday Church, Hiking in the mountain, Grandparents and family Dinners. All of which influence my artwork. I am very influenced by illustrations of the fifty’s. My Greatest Inspirations are Norman Rockwell, Garth Williams, Marcie Sendak, Quinton Blake, and Beatrix Potter to name a few. I work in colored pencil, watercolor, occasionally acrylic grauge or chalk pastel. I am concentrating on improving my craft and developing a portfolio.|

When you've got water stuck in your ear, how do you get it out?
lean me haed sideways, shake, hit the other side with my hand, then shake more so all the water in my hair goes everywhere, like a big shaggy dog.
