Taryn Wells was born in Massachusetts in 1981. She received a B.A. in Studio Art from Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Taryn's artwork is a dialogue that explores the complicated world of racial identity and the desire to find her place within it as a multiracial individual. The basis of the series emanated from her need to examine the dualities and dark truths of America. Her distinctive perspective on a hidden history manifests itself through art that is sometimes sardonic, sometimes somber, but always compelling. She sees a parallel with today's perception of race and yesterday's reality. .
