FOR THE LOVE OF ART & CONNECTION
Workshops. Gallery. Events.
For the love of bringing people together and using our hands to create beautiful things, Taylor & Rae Studio seeks to connect people, spark inspiration, and create and show fine art and handmade goods. We are a gallery, educational art studio, and place for your special creative event.
Housed in a charming barn in Princeton, MA, Taylor & Rae Studio serves the local community, offering a creative space for teens and adults to gather, explore artistic ventures, practice sustainability, and learn new skills through workshops and courses. We also offer private custom events for your social circle and seasonal art exhibits to support and celebrate local artists and makers.
Named after my two daughters, Avani Rae & Amaya Taylor, this business is a dedication to my girls as I strive to be a stay at home mom while setting an example of hard work, passion, and the importance of building community. Our bottom line is to bring people together to appreciate beauty and enjoy a rejuvenating and meaningful experience with others.

A Business Dedicated to My Daughters
It began with a vision of inspiring my daughters through how I choose to live. We were driving our first daughter, Avani Rae, home from the hospital for the first time when I was hit with a wave of desire to live a life that would instill in my daughter the values of kindness, bravery, boldness, and creativity. After over a decade of teaching fine art in public school, and the birth of my second daughter, Amaya Taylor, I made the leap to open my own business: Taylor & Rae Studio.
By opening this studio on our property, I want my daughters to witness their mom taking risks, learning from failure, and persisting through challenges. I want my daughters to witness and appreciate diverse thinking, different perspectives, and life stories. I want my daughters to witness kindness, boldness, bravery, and creativity and see how a community can come together to inspire, connect and create.
