Lakewood Artist Featured In National Art Magazine

Gilded Goddess art doll

Using the beauty and spirit inherent in metal, Therese Taylor created a 'Gilded Goddess' art doll. The piece was submitted to Art Doll Quarterly in response to a metal themed challenge to artists across America. Among hundreds of entries, Therese's doll was chosen to be published in the August 2010 results issue.

Cleveland's metal industry cast off's have long fueled artists to create various forms of 'Green Art'. "Metal of all forms has always drawn me in, it's such a beautiful and versitile medium," says Therese. "And I enjoy the challenge of creating beauty from something that has been discarded."

She is re-purposing metal scrap items and featuring them in a wonderful new form. From art dolls to home decor, her metal work is intriguing and stunning. Therese recently opened Keyhole Gallery at 11817 Detroit Ave. in Lakewood. She is a graduate of Virginia Marti College of Art and Design for jewelry design.
