Beth Taylor, Adjunct Instructor
I am Beth. I'm a designer, artist, and educator. I use design to promote understanding and further ideas. I believe in research, in making, in the fluidity of learning and educating.
I grew up on Martha's Vineyard and live now in Portland, Maine. I completed an MFA in Graphic Design at Maryland Institute College of Art in 2011, a BFA in Graphic Design at Maine College of Art in 2008, and a BA in Social Science and Visual Art at Bennington College in 2003.
Along with my love for art and design, I am an avid nester, caretaker of fuzzy beings, and swimmer of oceans. I've slept in an airfield, a boxing ring, and a snow cave. I've been paid to dye yarn, draw pictures, sew, teach art, be a good DIYer, counsel survivors of rape, and dance to Richard Simmons.
I am heavily influenced by eighties-era portrayals of young girls with fiery red hair and a costume that always included kneesocks. Have the will to make things happen and enjoy doing them. Have the courage to try. Trust.
