Taggart grew up in New York City. She studied art in New Hampshire, Italy and Virginia. Taggart’s surrealistic and masterfully rendered comic-tragic tableaus invite the viewer into a world dynamically and intentionally at odds with itself. Her oil paintings overflow with visual information and imagery to convey the media saturated world of the 21st century. Taggart is fascinated with multiple truths and believes that for every perspective there is a different truth. This is what she wishes to convey through her work.
