About Linda

Linda Taylor

Foodie, photographer, graphic designer, textile designer, colorist, traveler.

I love all things creative. I am lucky that I have a career that allows me to have a creative opinion on just about anything. Sometimes it’s just to hard to choose which creative endeavor I like best.

Photography is my ‘verbal’ skill. I find it harder to communicate with words than with visuals. With visual information, I am able to create composites of my life and experiences in books, photos essays, videos and now, this blog. I draw upon my experience as a graphic designer which contributes to my style and my brand, which will grow and evolve with each post.

As for my livelihood as a textile designer and colorist, I am able to experience the added dimension of texture and contrast to my creative little world.

I have been fortunate to travel quite a bit, mostly for work. Listed below are the countries I have visited. I look forward to going back to most of them, with a different itinerary in mind, one that does not include trade shows!

Barbados, Belgium, Brazil, British Virgin Islands, Canada, Chile, China, Columbia, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dubai, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Jamaica, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, The Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Scotland, Singapore, U. S. Virgin Islands, Venezuela and Wales.

Some of my World Famous Foods – Chicken (shrimp, flounder) Francaise, Braised Beef in Wine, Barbecue Chicken, a variety of homemade yogurts, Roast Turkey (but my Mom makes the best gravy EVER), Goose, Mac & Cheese, Peach Chutney and a whole bunch of other things that I will share along the way. One of the keys to successful cooking are the most basic of ingredients or preparation. I will ALWAYS make my own chicken, beef and vegetable stock, will only buy meat from quality butchers (preferably from the Amish, because you know it was alive the day before) and I make my own pasta when possible. Food doesn’t have to be fancy, it just needs to be nourishing for the body and inspirational for the soul.
