Hello! My name is Taylor Brant and I’m from St. Louis, Missouri. I spent a lot of my childhood outdoors and art began to accompany that. I used to draw all the coolest sticks, rocks, and leaves I would find. Now, as a Rocky Mountain National Park Education Ranger, I love to paint my surroundings and help others enjoy nature through outdoor art experiences.
The theme “We come in peace” resonated with me and my experience first moving to Fraser. Right after college I knew I wanted to live in the Colorado Rockies, and the opportunity to move to Fraser presented itself. I was scared to be out on my own in a new place but this community was welcoming and made me feel at home in an instant. When I see Byers peak I remember that wonderful summer, hiking with new friends, identifying wildflowers and painting. I hope that many others are able to experience the friendliness and beauty Fraser has to offer.
