Education: Patricia Cahill Taft’s artistic eye was sharpened along the historic waterfront of Boston’s North Shore where she was immersed in a wide range of maritime activities. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Salem State University, she continued her education at Massachusetts College of Art, and Montserrat College of Art.

Current Work: Cahill Taft's artistic passion began and continues to be in the fine arts of painting and photography. Technical advances in creative computer software precipitated a new channel of artistic expression in this ever evolving realm of innovative imagination. Her graphic design projects encompass billboards, CD artwork, magazine covers and advertisements.
