Not only did Tai capture the absolute essence of our beloved Kitty in the finest, soul-deep, exquisite detail, but she was also a pleasure and consummate professional to work with. Her communication was beyond expectations, with frequent updates on her progress. I would highly recommend Tai for creating such a personal, thoughtful, lasting gift. Her ability to portray your beloved pet is not only indicative of expert skill, but an uncanny intuitive sense as well, as if she becomes friends with your pet in the process.

Tai is great to communicate with and produces excellent artwork! I commissioned a colored pencil portrait as a gift for my girlfriend and it was perfect!

The art that Tai can create with paper and pencils is absolutely incredible! I commissioned her to create a drawing of my cavachon, Mason as a Christmas present for my wife. Tai did such an amazing job that my wife thought it was a photo at first. The realism in Tai’s art is outstanding! Communication was great - I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! If you need a unique gift for someone you love or just want to treat yourself to a special piece of art, don’t hesitate to contact Tai Blue Fine Art!

Tai's art is outstanding! She sent us pictures as her work progressed and turn around was way faster than we had imagined. She penciled our two fur-babies and they look so real people think that its a photo. Highly recommend!!

Mission

Connecting people and art, through online courses and community. We are here to share tonal values, color theory, textures, realism and other genres and the love of animals with other topics we will approach too, with you. We’ll be using many different mediums, but mainly colorpencil. 
All The Tools You Here you can learn and with our community page share, chat and ask questions. We are supportive of one another and here to help each other grow. 
We offer courses in pen, color pencil, charcoal and graphite in real-time, closed captions and at your own pace that you can return to time and time again. Although many of us these days find art to be a non-essential, we very much find it essential to our well-being, our imagination and our happiness. Through art we find fulfillment, purpose and connection to others. That’s why, not only do I have courses to support your creative mind but also the support of community.
