Kris Taylor is a Prince Edward Island artist who lives in New Glasgow with his wife Melanie and their five children. There he crafts his oil paintings. He is mostly self taught even though his mother and grandmother were both once painters and handed him down all of their old oils and brushes. Kris enjoys traditional island scenes especially those involving everyday work, farm and marine themes, as well as children and family interaction.
Kris has also been a recording artist since the late 90’s, and now helps Melanie run Harmony House Theatre, a performing arts centre he built in Hunter River with his salvaging and traditional building techniques. Post and beam with stonework and brick masonry have been his preferred styles of architecture for the theatre, lounge and his home. The theatre also now serves as a gallery for Kris’ work.
