The LGBTQ+ Queen Bee is a collaboration between CJTaylord Art (Christian) and Bed Sedman Photography.
Christian is a Freelance Artist who has been living in Manchester since 2004. For the past 4 years, he has explored his passion for colour, film, music and history through his bespoke imagery. His unique approach of painting on glass which is set in a box frame, makes use of light and shadows, enabling him to embody core imagery in a creative, striking and inspiring three dimensional way. Christian‘s clients have included Manchester Pride, Radisson Blu Edwardian, NEXT Retail Manchester and the Hilton Manchester, who all commissioned him to create bespoke pieces. Christian also holds charitable giving very close to his heart, raising over £20,000 last year through donations of his art work.
