A Silk Painting Artist from Costa Rica, Wendy Tayler

Wendy Tayler is part of the thriving community of transplanted artists in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica.  She spent her childhood in San Francisco.  She has been living in northern Costa Rica since 1990 and has built a successful business based on her creative painting skills.  Silk from China is her choice of media.  Her company Costa Rica Silks, Ltd., markets products directly and through many outlets like Etsy, various tourist locations in the Guanacaste province, local art galleries like the Hidden Garden and by word of mouth. 

The products produced by Wendy include scarves, kimonos, wraps, wall hangings and miscellaneous special projects like the first example given below, which features significant events in a couple's fifty years of marriage for a wedding anniversary present.  Her most frequent inspiration for her paintings lies in her tropical surroundings near her farm north of Liberia - plants, birds, animals and insects that are common to Costa Rica.  Here are seven examples of her art.  Visit her web site and her Etsy account to see more examples of her talent and abilities!
