Ginger Taylor - Artist, Sydney
Meet the women who are doing what they love, not what they're told.
ARTIST, SYDNEY AUSTRALIA
P&Co: Tell us a bit about yourself, describe your art style!
Ginger: I have always been influenced by vintage Americana themes and I think that shows through my art and style. I can never drive past an old motel sign without taking a photo, in the same sense I can never walk past a good pair of vintage coveralls without trying them on. P&Co: Would you say a lot of your work is empowering to women?
Ginger: I would say all of it is, even if the piece isn’t specifically of a woman or women’s issues - it’s still been created by a woman, and that’s empowering in itself. P&Co: Do you have a project that you are most proud of?
Ginger: I’m pretty proud of that time I did an animation for Lily Allen, mainly because I have been dancing in my bedroom to her since I was 14. I’m proud of every job I do though, sometimes I think back to when I felt lost and remember how lucky I am for the possibilities I’ve come across so far. I feel lucky but I also work my butt off so it’s a 50/50 feeling haha. P&Co: What're you doing when you're not painting?
Ginger: Roller skating or watching trashy TV shows - currently obsessed with Nashville.
P&Co: Why do you think it is important to highlight women doing what they love & not what they're told?
Ginger: Who likes doing what they’re told?! I’ve never been a fan. For example, I love drawing on walls. When I was in school I would get detention for it, and now I make a living off it. Never listen to negative people, just like your mum says - they’re just jealous.
