About Info

Artist Name
Taffie Garsee
Artist Statement

I create representational paintings of creatures in nature to express human conditions.  I like to use bugs and flowers as the subjects of my paintings to restrict the tendency of people to form biases based on race, gender or political affiliation . This allows for a new perspective and a way to see the nature of a situation rather than the politics of it.
