Deanna (Dee) Bailey completed fine art and biology studies in Alberta. She moved to the Yukon in 2010 for a wilderness guiding job. Dee’s strong love of nature, wildlife and the outdoors is often the subject matter of her art. Dee aims to reconnect people with nature through art, especially by teaching art workshops and classes. Interested in fusing painting and sculpture, Dee has been developing techniques for painting with oil-based modelling clay since 2013. Dee enjoys uniting biology and art, as well as creating contemporary landscape and wildlife paintings. In 2015 Dee attended a residency in France at a clay facility to work on 3D modelling techniques. She enjoys teaching students the techniques she’s mastered for sculptural painting and helping students to discover their own methods. Her art can be seen at Arts Underground and Yukon Artists at Work Gallery.
