Natalie Shupe and Anne Taylor
Endure Frame and Design – Studio 29
Anne S. Taylor is rooted here in the Ogden area. She grew up in Liberty and attended good old Weber High. Painting and drawing have always been a part of her life, strongly encouraged and inspired by her mom, Natalie Shupe. Anne graduated from Utah State University with her BFA in 2010 and moved to Seattle shortly thereafter. Eight years in the Northwest brought a variety of jobs, adventures, and experiences, but she’s glad to be back in Ogden. She now works as a studio manager for other painters, which has thrown fuel on her artistic fire. Her favorite subject is the human face and figure. In 2022 she plans to draw inspiration from short stories written by her husband, Gabriel Taylor. Classes and portrait commissions are also available upon request.
Natalie Rhees Shupe was born in Ogden, Utah at the base of beautiful Ben
Lomond Peak. She grew up on a small farm with animals and fruit trees and
lots of room to roam. Oil painting lessons began when piano lessons failed.
She began to paint in oils at eleven years of age. In her youth, painting
had to share time with climbing trees and chasing balls. It was at Snow
College while playing softball that she had the opportunity to study with
Osrael Allred and Carl Purcell. She finished a BFA at Utah State University
in Art Education. When her two-year-old son ate the oil paints off her
palette, she put them away. The demands of family took over. The desire to
paint returned when her oldest daughter began her art degree at Utah State.
Natalie has been painting determinedly ever since. Searching for subject
matter, hiking, roaming, and exploring, are the special perks of being a
Endure Frame & Design is focused on frame making and support services for

here to help artists succeed.”
