Kevin Bailey

In 1996 Kevin took classes at the Atlanta College of Art, now the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD). Under the tutelage of Eula Ginsberg, he was encouraged to hone his artistic eye and creative abilities. In 2002, he moved to Pacific Northwest, where he took up fly-fishing, which rekindled his love of the outdoors. While out on his favorite streams, he began to take photographs, first as something to remember the place, later as an expression of his artistic abilities.

Kevin is a renaissance man in that he now creates in a variety of mediums, producing unique work. Be it acrylics, book making, photography, etching or blacksmithing, Kevin is self taught and works hard to study each medium in depth.

Kevin will be joining the faculty of the John C. Campbell School in 2022 to teach Gyotaku (Japanese fish printing) and Cyanotype (printing with the sun) in a Book Arts program. His eye for design and layout make him a unique artist across all mediums.

Kevin’s most recent ventures have been making handmade books and journals and is also exploring non-toxic etching techniques.When asked about his work, Kevin described it this way:

When I take a picture, my only goal is to capture the image that I see; to create something beautiful that I can share with others, so that they will see what I see and find the peace in it that I do. For that one brief moment, we’re all in the same place. It is in the discovery and creating of images that makes it possible for me to convey a deeper connection with the power, poetry and divinity found in nature. At times I change the colors of the image to express a different phrase or feeling, something that is timeless, perhaps off-beat and always unique.

His work is available in original framed and unframed formats. Kevin also works on commissions and has the ability to bring your idea to life. For more details Kevin can be contacted at info@annartgallery.com.
