San Francisco artist Josephine Taylor makes large-scale drawings in pencil and ink. Her work is narrative and is related to being in the dream state and recalling childhood memories. Spark visits Taylor in her studio to see the process behind her imagery.

Taylor earned a B.A. in religious studies and East Indian translation languages from the University of Colorado and an M.F.A. in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute. She was awarded a residency at the Headlands Center for the Arts and a SFMOMA SECA Award in 2004.
