I am Mel Taylor. I was born and raised in Louisville,Kentucky. I was drafted into the U.S.Army in 1965, shortly after graduating from high school. I was trained and sent to Viet Nam. I am the recipient of a Purple Heart for wounds received there. My passion has always been art. I have studied art from grade school through college. My mediums cover just about every category there is. Because I have sold art work in Japan, I can label myself as an international artist. I am looking for an artist's representative.
