Where Women Create, Spring Issue

“The print-and-pattern-infused creative spaces of designer Rachael Taylor.”

Rachael received a very generous 10-page feature in the amazing US magazine Where Women Create.

Below is an extract from the beginning of the article & the start of her story:

“I live in Liverpool, which is a city I absolutely love and hold very dear to my heart. I returned to Liverpool a couple of years ago, and now my home and studio are within a leafy suburb of the city made famous by the Beatles. Working on two businesses from home while having a little one can be hectic at times, but even with the demands of business and the joy and excitement of daily life, I’ve managed to create a life and a career where I can continue to push myself to new levels. Even with the many difficult bumps I’ve hit along the way, nothing seems impossible to me anymore, and I truly believe this can be the case for anyone. Half the battle is recognising your own worth, tuning out the negativity, and simply working hard. I hope that by sharing my story you are able to recognise this reality for yourself as well.”

Below are some exclusive photos from the shoot for the feature:

Within her story Rachael wanted to share some advice on dealing with setbacks:

“At times, it felt like it would never happen, but it’s essential to remember that setbacks do not dictate what you can achieve. When things don’t go right in life, I love to say it’s just a plot twist, and carry on! Bumps in the road also help me to appreciate the final result even more.”
