Taisha Teal Wayrynen, Artist, Model, Traveller, Animal
Lover was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia.
She’s working towards a Masters Degree Art therapy and
adolescent psychology. Taisha identified a synergy between
psychology and art and is excited to incorporate that unique
perspective into her work. Her vision is to one day open a
counseling center that features Art Therapy to help children
overcome traumatic events.
Taisha’s home life has been art focused since the day she was
born. Her mother, a talented artist, raised Taisha and her
younger sister Skyla in an environment enriched with art.
Playtime involved every type of artistic medium they could
get their hands on, including, oil paints, acrylic, water color,
pastel, glass stains, ceramics and a home kiln, photography
and cake decorating. Taisha has experimented with them
all, which allowed her to develop a rich toolkit that she
continues to experiment with and add to.
Taisha’s last “Pop Icon” collection which was featured at
Art!Vancouver, an international art fair, made the cover
of the magazine, and received praise during the show.
