Kendra Alexzine Bailey is a Freelance painter, writer, illustrator and Irish dancer, but not always in that order. She lives in the beautiful and underrated province of Ontario, in the oh so apologetic, but scenic nation of Canada. She has displayed art locally at Beaux Arts gallery in Brampton, Ontario, and currently paints and dusplays at her studio in the Alton She is excited to be sharing a gallery space with fellow artist, Emma Pink, at the Alton Mill Arts Centre.
She holds an Honours BA in English Literature, with a minor in History, from the University of Guelph, as well as a Creative Writing Post-Graduate Certificate from Humber College. She has taken art throughout her High School and University career, but increasingly found herself learning from books, YouTube and good old trial and error. She is currently a performer at De'Voy Academy of Irish dance, and takes great thrill in the dance and the joy it brings those who watch and those who perform.
As a predominately self-trained artist, she has received her education from the forest and streams of her hometown, and the mountains and oceans of her home away from home, Vancouver Island. She's not as organized in her studio as she sometimes wishes she was, and looks back at all the moments when she's found herself being scolded for tracking paint all around the house.
She apologizes for the strange photo. She doesn't have anything more professional at the moment and is rather fond of her red wig and skeleton sweater. "Memento Mori," as she cheerfully says!
