I am so happy that I found Bayley! She made me the most beautiful painting, which I commissioned earlier this year. No photo I've ever taken has done it justice or captured it's magic - there are these really delicate details layered throughout.
I loved her whole process. It was thoughtful, collaborative, and intimate. I wanted a painting to represent and celebrate my family. Bayley got me to share stories and moments about everyone, our history and also how we connect. The painting tells such a special story for me and is something that I will cherish forever. I can keep everyone I love on my mind & above my head each night.
She also took the time to share with me the meaning behind the painting - what different things meant, which parts were for different family members or relationships. She just "got" everything that I told her, and shared with me a really beautiful reflection on how that had informed her work. Thank you for sharing your talent and culture with me Bayley!!
