A solo exhibit of works by Pacific Northwest artist Heather Taylor will be on view beginning Friday, Dec. 2 and continuing through the end of January at Mystic Journey Bookstore in Venice.

An opening reception is scheduled from 7 p.m. to midnight Dec. 2 at the bookstore, 1319 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice.

This will be the first exhibit in Southern California for Taylor, a native of Oregon and a longtime resident of Washington who has created and sold artwork in the northwest for many years.

The artist’s works are created through many media including watercolor, gouache, acrylic, pastel and ink. In addition to several original pieces, there will be a variety of prints and giclees available at the local exhibit.

“Mystic Journey seems like an ideal place for my particular work,” says Taylor. “I focus on the energy behind the form, the divinity within humanity. This exploration is a mystic journey into the self.

“Also, I am just completing a children’s book and plan to bring some of the illustrations with me to Mystic Journey.”

Prior to 9-11, Taylor wrote a children’s book, “Love Is A Circle,” a story of the human family, and she is completing the illustrations now.
