Born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina, Taylor acquired an early love for art and design. Whether it stemmed from continuously taking apart and reassembling toys or witnessing, and eventually assisting with the interior overhaul of her own home, she quickly took on a "designers eye".
Taylor's formal training was completed at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Savannah, Georgia where she obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Design. While living there, she worked for a local firm specializing in both residential and commercial projects where she assisted with the procurement process and installations. Taylor also had the opportunity to work with SCAD's Collaborative Learning Center and Cellular Sales on a re-branding project where the team was to create a unique image and experiential interior environment for the company.
Since graduating, Taylor's artistic range has shown no boundaries. She has worked on a variety of graphic design and visual branding opportunities which included creating the visual language and identity for Driftwood Southern Kitchen of Raleigh. Having since moved to Dallas, Texas, she now continues to make art and expand upon her knowledge and skills within the world of interior design while working as a designer at BOKA Powell.
As the wheels are continuously churning for new concepts, ideas, and designs, Taylor gets inspiration from an abundance of sources whether it be from her own experiences and surroundings or from every day media and research. She strongly believes that research plays an important role in developing any form of design. When it comes to these ideals, Taylor states:
"there is always something new to learn. As a designer, we are forever students in this fast-paced and ever-changing world. We are continuously adapting and learning of new processes, techniques, and materials- so it is important to keep an open and playful mind. If one does not maintain this mindset, they will not be able to set themselves apart and progress... besides, it keeps the mind young."
