Welcome to the Bailey site. On this page you will see a selection of my work so please take a quick look (may as well, you’re here now) and let me know what you think. Below is a brief description of who I am and of course a bit about the art, enjoy.
Although I do not remember my infancy in Ecuador I have since had the opportunity to return to that country and lived in the USA and Puerto Rico, both of which left strong impressions on my personal and artistic development. Passing through a variety of schools and colleges I was able to work in many different media before completing a BA in fine art at Anglia Ruskin University. I am now based in the Midlands.
My practice is varied, including sculpture, collage, painting and drawing. An overarching theme is the use or reuse of materials from my daily life. Art can be made from literally anything and everything. My time in Cambridge was particularly influential on my current practice as it was there I first experimented with working with all the waste that we produce throughout our daily life, in an ongoing mission to produce art from it. I use a large palette of colours in a lot of my work which is a relatively easy yet effective way to create a lot of variety and am fascinated with the vastly differing effects achievable by combining colours that go well together or alternatively clash with one another.
I have been involved in a few exhibitions since my student years and have produced a calendar featuring my art for just over the past 10. I have recently also started printing my work on various items of clothing which are all available in a wide range of sizes and colours. I should be showcasing my latest work at the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum in 2022. Meanwhile I hope you enjoy looking at some of the examples on this website, many of which are available for purchase.
Any feedback is always welcome and I will always engage personally with anyone who takes the trouble to contact me.
