Founder of Rainbow Lightning Youth Village, was born and raised in New York. She earned a bachelors degree in humanities [focusing on art, business, health and wellness] from the State University of New York at Oneonta. During her time in school, Taylor taught herself how to sew; she began to design clothing and spread her passion for self expression through wearable art, by teaching sewing lessons! Before leaving New York to start her life in Colorado, Taylor spent time working as an art therapist [for adults and children on all aspects of life’s vibrant spectrum!], both privately and in various group/community homes. She was also blessed with the opportunity of working in a number of different theaters, as a tailor, around the northeast region. Taylor’s experiences in New York unveiled to her, a passion for life and a drive to continue spreading her love for healing arts wherever she goes. Summer of 2011, after planting her seeds of creativity in her east coast communities, Taylor moved to Denver, Colorado. It was in Denver, that she found a network of support for her vision to unite the planet through art and music. Feeling so fortunate to have found such a refreshing community of artists, activists and visionary leaders, Taylor decided to stay in Colorado and start a small company, with a BIG mission… Rainbow Lightning!
