Rachel Emily Taylor is a fine artist, lecturer and AHRC Ph.D. researcher.

The daughter of a porcelain doll-maker, Rachel was born in Sydney, Australia before moving with her family to Konongo, Ghana and then to the North Yorkshire moors in England.

After completing a degree at University of the Arts London (BA Hons) she went on to study at the Royal College of Art (MA), during which she was awarded the Peter Gordon Pickard Award to travel to Rome. Upon obtaining her MA, and working as a professional artist, she began her Fine Art (practice-based) Ph.D. AHRC studentship in 2014 with the Heritage Consortium. The title of her Ph.D. research is Heritage as Process: Constructing the Historical Child’s Voice through Art Practice.

Alongside her current research, Rachel is a Lecturer in Studio Practice at University of the Arts London. Rachel has presented papers at: “Performing the Archive” at NUI Galway; “Method Conference” at Sheffield Hallam University; and “Annual Heritage Consortium Conference” at Huddersfield University.

Rachel has exhibited across the UK: at the Rag Factory in London, the Tetley in Leeds, The Old Joint Stock in Birmingham, Bank Street Arts in Sheffield and the Egg Suite in Manchester, amongst others. 

Rachel has undertaken artist residencies in Malta, New York and Belgium. She has been funded by the British Council to be exhibited internationally and was awarded a Grant for the Arts by Arts Council England in 2015 and 2016.

Alongside exhibiting Rachel has fostered a close relationship with Museums. She has facilitated workshops and performed as a live artist at the Wellcome Collection, the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Design Museum. As part of her Ph.D. research, she has undertaken an artist residency at the Museum of Witchcraft.
