   Widely traveled artist Bryan Mark Taylor has a diversity of skills and talents. In addition to winning top awards both nationally and internationally, Taylor lectures and teaches, co-founding the Sentient Academy and Vision X global art conference. Artists may also know Taylor as the developer of the popular Strada easel. He shared with us paintings from his world travels, notes on his painting process, the beginnings of his artistic journey, and his thoughts for students beginning their journey on the artist's road.

I think the essence of being an artist is sitting down, doing the work, and enjoying the process. You need to be comfortable being alone for hours on end because it takes time and sacrifice to hone your craft, and there are no shortcuts if you want to produce anything of quality. It will greatly help your trajectory if you can find a good school or mentor to study with as long as you are willing to accept critical feedback in order to improve. There will be brief moments of acclaim, but the day-to-day work in the studio is where you will find the greatest satisfaction.
