Art for the love of nature.

Yukon-based artist, Dee Bailey, has developed techniques for sculptural painting since 2013. Trained in fine art and biology in Alberta, her love of nature, wildlife, and the outdoors are often the subject matter of her art. Dee creates to reconnect people with nature through art. She refreshes painting genres, while adding in a twist of surrealism. Dee seeks daily habits and studio practices that contribute to environmental sustainability.

In 2015, Dee attended an artist’s residency in Vallauris, France at a clay facility. She was selected to participate in the Canada C3 voyage in 2017 as an artist aboard an ice breaker vessel. An Iceland artist residency in 2018 allowed Dee to research people’s connections to nature. During July 2019 Dee was the artist in residence in Yukon’s Tombstone Territorial Park. In 2020 she presented a solo exhibition of clay paintings centered on themes of respect, security, and comfort in nature. Dee is a member of the Yukon Artists at Work Society, where the members run their own gallery.
