Bailey is at heart an expressionist painter. Her work is emotionally driven, highly textured. and the result of the immediate process of painting. She does not paint according to plan but allows each painting to unfold as she goes along. As Bailey says, “I enter into a dance with each new canvas and never have a clue where I am going to end up.” She works in oil, mixed media, collage, and drawing. Bailey has shown in numerous galleries and her work is in many private and public collections across the country, including that of Halle Berry, Tia Carrere, Steve Jablonsky, and Todd & Katie Boelhy, owners of the LA Dodgers. She is also passionate about surfing, dance, architecture and fashion.
