Whimsical, colourful paintings

Brisbane, Queensland

Announcement    I am a self-taught artist from Springfield, Queensland, Australia.

I enjoy painting in watercolours and acrylics. I draw inspiration from the world around me, representing subjects in a colourful and whimsical style. I also enjoy painting scientific subjects including views from the microscope and telescope.

I specialise in 'tree portraits', where people are represented in the form of trees, and family connections are shown using colour, space and shape. I started making these portraits when my son was born, as I wanted a painting for his nursery wall that represented our family. I used blue and yellow trees to represent myself and my husband, and a green tree for our son - the green representing the fact that he is a blend of the two of us. The green hearts show that we are always connected as a family.

My favourite thing about painting is the way it lets me get away from the world for a while. It’s almost like meditation to get lost in the details. I also love the way painting helps me feel connected to others. I love the idea of my painting hanging on another person’s wall and bringing them happiness, even when they may be on the other side of the world.

I have exhibited my work in several group exhibitions including Spring Palette at the Richard Randall Studio Gallery, and Through My Eyes at the Art Factory Gallery. My work is featured in private collections in Australia and Internationally.

I create art because I want to make people happy - I absolutely love the idea of one of my paintings hanging on someone's wall and making them smile. I also like to collect art from emerging artists.

If you see anything there you like which I haven't listed here, just convo me and I'll see what I can do! Even if a piece is already sold, I can always create a similar painting for you. Most of the paintings listed here are watercolours, as they are easy and inexpensive to post.

About klbaileyART

On Etsy since 2009

I love to create art!

I have always enjoyed painting and creating, ever since I was little. I started creating art as a hobby business when my husband and I bought our first home and I started creating paintings to decorate it. Before long, friends and family were requesting paintings. Then, I decided to try selling my work. Since then, I've sold paintings here in Australia as well as to overseas customers. I've created custom paintings for people, and I've participated in several exhibitions. I love to create, and my favourite thing about selling a painting is knowing that my work will be viewed and enjoyed by someone I don't even know, and who might even be on the other side of the world!

    I'm an Australian artist and I love to work with watercolours and acrylics. I have a whimsical style that ranges from swirly trees to more abstract pieces. I specialise in creating abstract portraits where people are represented by trees.
