Artist Hollis Taylor is an award-winning artist who has been working as a commissioned artist for several years. She has enjoyed membership in several art organizations including Lake Area Arts Council, Missouri Watercolor Society, National Oil and Acrylic Painters of America, and the National Portrait Society plus she enjoys attending workshops during the summer. Hollis has exhibited work across the United States and Ireland. Her painting of Bleu Dog was selected for the label on the Collector Series Wine at Les Bourgeois Winery.

Hollis recently retired from teaching art at Tuscumbia Schools last year. She now enjoys traveling, painting small watercolors in her journal, and photographing pets. Hollis has an art degree from Texas A&M University and graduate work from MU, where her painting instructors would often tell her to “Go to your studio and Paint!” Good advice she still follows.
