Bailey always loved to draw. Around age 10, she started creating portraits for family and friends. Selling art became a part of her life as she produced more work, and Bailey had sold a number of pieces by the time she was a teenager. After showing more interest at school, she took private lessons with a local artist exploring watercolour, oil painting, traditional sketching techniques and more.
As she grew up, commission work continued, but Bailey didn’t prioritize creating or consider a profession as a self-employed artist. After walking away from two programs for other artistic careers, she eventually decided to stop running from what she now feels is her calling. “Creating has helped me cope with challenges and become a better problem solver. It also gave me confidence when I couldn’t see it for myself.” — Bailey
Now her focus is creating and teaching art. Bailey’s work can be described as abstract realism, layered with mystical elements portraying a dream-like realm. She enjoys balancing soft, light, romantic atmospheres with rich contrast and colour. On her journey to share the beauty she sees through art, Bailey invites viewers to imagine themselves in the worlds she creates.
Bailey is a 24 year old visual artist from the maritimes who has been selling her portraits for 10+ years. She won Art Battle in her city in 2024, was commissioned to create artwork for CFB Gagetown, and has completed two summer residencies with the Fredericton Art’s Alliance.
Aside from creating, Bailey is also an art instructor. She teaches private lessons, after-school classes, and leisure learning courses.
