About Taya

Taya Maddock

As the daughter of acclaimed artist, Anny Maddock, Taya was raised in a creatively stimulating environment and started drawing and painting at a very young age. During her school career she attended the Lady Grey Arts Academy in the Eastern Cape where she excelled as a pianist and lead vocalist of the school choir, as well as achieving awards as the most gifted artist in the school. By the age of 13 Taya's work was mentioned to be of University quality by a head adjudicator of the Unisa Art Department. Her final two years of schooling was at Hermanus High School and during this time she attended adult art classes under the tuition of artist Shelley Adams, earning herself 100% for her Art Practical exam at the end of Matric. After matriculating Taya studied Web/Graphic design, and also studied to be a teacher. Taya still teaches art in her free time.

Taya has been working as a professional and full-time artist for the last five years, with her work being sought after internationally.


The simplified expression of her subject matter is key to her technique. She strips the subject of all pretences and leaves it open and exposed to the viewer.[0xC2A0]Her palette is often muted and she makes use of stylized line and shape. Her use[0xC2A0]of colour is subject to the relevant message she is trying to convey and she uses arbitrary colours which give the subject a quiet and serene feel, if need be.[0xC2A0]As a person Taya is deeply passionate and forthright, and these qualities are reflected in her expressive recent works which are sometimes reminiscent of Carl Buchner's portraits. Even in her earlier pencil sketches, the boldness of her style was evident and Taya now has the confidence to break down her subject matter into simple colours, shapes and forms.

Her work has been exported to the UK, Germany and Canada amongst other countries, and investment buyers saw her potential at a very early stage. Whilst still at school, her art was already included in various art collector's homes and collections.
