Tayla Martin is young regional artist who graduated in 2017 with a Bachelor of Creative Arts and Design (Photography & Graphic Design) from Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga NSW.
Growing up in rural NSW, in the small country town of Nyngan has influenced much of Taylas’ photographic practice and her understanding for the need of arts in Regional NSW.
