Dr. Bailey is a SCAD Alumni originally from Springfield, GA. For the past 26 years she has lived in Bali, Indonesia. As a visual and performing artist, minister, chaplain and Trauma-informed expressive arts therapist her work has taken her around the world.
Much of her visual art work in this exhibition is inspired by her life experiences. She has studied forms of Indonesian traditional art, dance and music. The intersection of Art and spirituality has been her life passion and was the focus of her dissertation. In her work she explores the importance of imagination, creativity and curiosity in developing an integrated life. This exploration has also developed to her teaching master classes with opera singers, musicians, as well as forming a dance and music exploration improv group. It all started here in Savannah when a small town girl started SCAD in 1994… and the rest is history
