Inner child drawing by Karin Taylor

Inner child drawing by Karin Taylor

Australian illustrator, Karin Taylor, is a mother of two children. She loves to illustrate for children and the inner child. Her muse is the ocean. Karin's art process is drawing with a mechanical pencil on paper. Her artistic career began in 2002. Her works are filled with childlike naivety and simplicity, but at the same time have a deep meaning. In doing so, and reliving some of those special memories, one can find they are reengaging with their inner child and re-experiencing something of that beautiful memory, that wonderful journey all over again. The sense of wonderment we had as children, often disappears amidst the stress of the ordinary everyday,but the only difference is that we aren’t accessing it, Karin says.
