About the Artist
Lewis "Wayne" Taylor began his art journey in sixth grade when he would build things with sticks and anything he could find. He’s come a long way to express himself away from a tough father, an intense stutter, and a head injury. He feels lucky to have survived his very colorful youth. In the past, he once served as an assistant to a jail chaplain. He is a member of AIM Center and came to H*ART Gallery from a class that we offered at Riverview Towers. Wayne is our gallery “chemist”, using soap and even avocado skins to make different textures with paint. Art expands his mind and helps him express himself. He felt he always had art in his mind.
