Trés Taylor is a contemporary self-taught painter living in Birmingham. Taylor was a biochemist for over 20 years then, after a visit with Southern artist R.A. Miller in 1998, he was inspired to begin his journey as a painter. His work can be found in several collections including Dupont Pioneer of Des Moines, IA, the Hurn Museum of Contemporary Folk Art of Savannah, GA, and is publicly displayed at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham.
Trés’ daughter, Lillis Taylor, is an industrial designer who is inspired by her father’s art. Lillis is the founder of Bibb and Tucker Sew-Op in Woodlawn and founder of The March Quilts. Together they have created artful textiles which celebrate the joy of life.
