Hi, nice to meet you, my name is Matthew James Taylor.
I created this website to share my passions of art, design and web development.
I have been building websites professionally for over 20 years.
My personal website (the one you're reading now) is over 21 years old and it's where I publish my web design tips, layouts, and other experiments.
I am also an artist.
My Dad was a professional artist and art teacher so I have been drawing and painting from the moment I could pick up a pencil (40+ years).
I created several comic strips and my Ogga the Cane Toad strip was published in the Observer Times, and The Independent newspapers in Queensland, Australia.
Over the last 18 years I have been keeping in touch with my creative side by life drawing at various venues around Sydney, Australia and studying human anatomy, portraiture, and classical drawing at Julian Ashton Art School.
I like exploring the junction where technology and creativity meet.
One interesting fact about me is I have a form of grapheme-colour synesthesia which is where I see letters and numbers as colours. This also helps me find four-leaf clovers!
If you would like to know more about me I can be contacted by email firstname.lastname@example.org or via social media.
