About the Artist
Bailliere finds beauty in the mundane, and it is in these everyday moments that she finds endless inspiration for her paintings. Whether through direct observation, both in the studio and en plein air, or through photos as reference material, Bailliere seeks to slow the steady march of time by lingering on a specific instant and interpreting the angle of the sun, the light, the colors, in paint.
Bailliere holds an MFA in visual art from Mills College, a BA cum laude in French from Duke University with extensive coursework in visual art and art history, and a post-bac in visual art and design from UC Berkeley. Bailliere spent a high school semester at the Cleveland Institute of Art in Lacoste, France where she focused solely on painting and drawing.
Bailliere's work has been presented at the Mills College Art Museum, the Worth Ryder Gallery at UC Berkeley, the Berkeley Art Center, the Palo Alto Art Center and the Five Points Arts Gallery in Torrington, Connecticut, among other venues. Bailliere was a recipient of the Being Human residency at the Palo Alto Art Center in 2018, and in 2016, she was a finalist for a residency fellowship at the Headlands Center of the Arts. Bailliere's work is available at Salty Design in Sausalito, CA and through the Jen Tough Collective in Santa Fe, NM. Her 2022 painting "Look Up!" is currently the subject of a long-term outdoor public art installation in downtown Mill Valley, California until March, 2023. Her work is included in many corporate and private collections. Please refer to Bailliere's CV for more detail.
In addition to sustaining an active studio practice, Bailliere teaches both studio and plein air painting in continuing education at College of Marin and San Francisco City College and leads workshops for Ruth's Table, an intergenerational artspace in San Francisco based on the life and work of Ruth Asawa.
