Kristina Bailey Headshot

Kristina Bailey’s creative works vary as much as the experiences that have shaped her artistic sensibilities.

Raised in Macon, Georgia, she obtained her first job as an artist at the age of 16 painting bananas and bagels, doughnuts and dollars on signs for her local grocery store.  After receiving her BFA in Fabric Design from the University of Georgia, she interned in New York City in the textile and fashion industries.  There she spent her days dying fabrics and embellishing clothing surfaces, an experience that would later greatly influence her painting.  

An opportunity in visual merchandising with a national fashion accessories company brought her back home to Georgia where she currently lives with her husband in Atlanta. Although painting is now Kristina’s full time pursuit, she continues to draw upon her creative adventures by embellishing her canvases with paper, yarn, and fabric. 

Kristina shares studio space with Holly Golson Bryan, Dixie Purvis, Betty Botts, and Corinne Adams in the Buckhead neighborhood of Atlanta.  She participates in Rendered, a ministry dedicated to glorifying God through the visual arts.  Eight of her paintings were exhibited in the Coastal Living Idea House at Bon Secour Village in Gulf Shores, Alabama, which was featured in the October 2007 issue of Coastal Living magazine.

She hopes that her art will inspire, restore, and uplift others.
