Southside Art League board member exhibits watercolor paintings in March

A one artist show by Indianapolis professional watercolor artist, Elise Taylor, will be on display at the Southside Art League Off Broadway Gallery in March. The featured artist and longtime member and a board member of the Southside Art League, will be exhibiting her collection of watercolor paintings in a variety of subject matter.

Elise J. Taylor, nee Elise J. Bullock, was born and raised in north central Massachusetts and moved to central Indiana in 1973. Although she has no formal art training, she holds a bachelor’s degree in education from Fitchburg State College in Massachusetts. Taylor began painting in oils as a teenager and converted to watercolor in 1990. She attributes her love of art to her mother Irene, who not only influenced her but also encouraged her.

The surrounding mountains and seacoast of the northeast and the farmlands of central Indiana has had a huge impact on Taylor’s choice of subject matter. She has also had the privilege of travelling throughout the United States including Alaska and Hawaii, and to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Russia, France and Guatemala.
