Artist, Model, Traveller, Animal Lover

Taisha Teal Wayrynen was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. She’s working towards a Masters Degree in Art therapy and adolescent psychology, she has a BA in Psychology from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, BC. 

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 counselling centre 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 siblings 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, spray paint, pottery with a home kiln, photography, Adobe photoshop, illustrator,  and cake decorating. Taisha has experimented with them all, which allowed her to develop a rich tool kit that she continues to experiment with and add to.

Taisha is represented by LeSoleil Gallery in Vancouver, and Hollyburn Gallery in West Vancouver.
