Faith Taylor
Valencia, California

Faith Taylor began her career as a self-taught mural artist in Los Angeles during the late 1980s. She was commissioned to paint over 2,000 murals in homes and businesses across Southern California before switching to canvas 14 years ago. Currently, Faith’s guiding inspiration is the concept of a far-off horizon. She finds hope and comfort in looking to the distance, to the future. “Horizons inspire me,” the artist says. “I find depth comforting as it not only gives my eyes a place to wander, but my mind a place to go and relax or explore.” Faith creates depth in her oil paintings by applying multiple layers of oil paint and glazes, waiting for days in between to allow the paint to dry. Faith's methodical layering technique is reflected in the patient and thoughtful mood of her artwork. The muted, earthy palette she employs encourages the viewer to meditate on each painting, gazing deeply to the abstracted horizon line.

Dear J Johnston, Thank you for your beautiful note. Yes, I am very curious about where my art goes. As an artist I am frequently asked about my inspiration or what my paintings mean to me. It is a rare blessing that I get to hear the story of how my painting touched someone else. Your story is beautiful and honest and so very appreciated. Thank you for sharing your story with me. I feel honored and grateful....and inspired. Thank YOU and congratulations on your marriage and all of your New Horizons. Much love. - Faith

I'm sure you are always curious where your art goes, so wanted to share the story behind my purchase of your work today. I moved in with my fiancé about a year and a half ago. In the living room he has a piece of art that he bought after a rough divorce. It’s gorgeous but casts a shadow from a darker time. I have been searching for the perfect piece to replace it, and today as I was paging through UGallery, I was immediately obsessed with the style, colors and light in your piece “New Horizon”. I'm also a big believer and fate and when I saw the title of this work and your profile, I knew that I had finally found the perfect piece. I purchased it immediately and can’t wait for it to arrive. Thank you for creating this magical piece. We are thrilled to add it to our home as we begin a new life together!

John, I am so happy you are enjoying my art. Yes, I would love to see where they are hanging. It's always such a mystery when something I've created and bonded with leaves my studio. Photos would be very welcomed. Thank you for your thoughtfulness. All the best to you. - Faith

Artwork Details

Comments About This Piece

There are many, many layers of paint and glazes in this piece. I had fun creating each layer. The exposed layers help to create the power and 'Strength' in this piece. The painting is on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Oil painting

Oil paint uses natural oils, such as linseed, poppy and walnut oil to bind the pigments. Oils are slow to dry, which allows the artist to rework the painting to achieve the desired effect. Also, they blend easily, which helps to achieve certain colors. With the rise of naturalism in 15th century Early Netherlandish painting, oil paints became preferred to quick drying tempera paint. Artists wanted a medium that would allow them to achieve detailed and precise effects in their paintings. Consider all of the detail in the masterpieces of Jan van Eyck and Hieronymus Bosch!

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.


A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
