Beryl Taylor was born in Rotherham, England, and grew up in the Manchester area where, after showing artistic talent, she studied at the Manchester High School of Art. She spent many years as a wife, mother and nurse until her artistic leanings were reawakened when she discovered creative embroidery. She trained at the City and Guilds textile and embroidery program and later started the textile group Threadmill with other City and Guilds graduates.
Beryl moved to the United States from England with her family in 2002 and now devotes all of her time to her art. She imaginatively manipulates, dyes, paints, stamps, embroiders and decorates her papers and fabrics to produce enriching textured effects and vibrant colors. An enduring theme in Beryl's work is the incorporation of the heart motif which is, in her own words, a reflection of her love for her art. Beryl is currently living and working as a mixed-media artist in Monroe Township, New Jersey.
