Hedden-Empire Gallery, 206 North 29th Street, welcomes local artist, Annie Bailey. Annie’s work is inspired by her life growing up on her family ranch in the Smith River Valley of Montana. The landscape was wild and untamed, and it influenced her work from the very start of her career. Annie now works out of her home studio in Billings, Montana, and her work has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens, as well as Crate and Barrel and several publications on modern illustrators.
She works primarily with oil paints, but has started to utilize the wide variety of options that digital illustration offers, and enjoys working with her iPad pro and Apple pencil. This allows her to work from anywhere, and quickly adapt to the digital world we live in. Her work is in world-wide collections, and she has worked as the poster designer for the Red Ants Pants Music Festival that takes place in her hometown of White Sulphur Springs, Montana, since it began in 2010. She is of Irish heritage and enjoys researching Irish Folk style and her newest work is a reflection of the simplicity and bold shapes of the old Irish Folk art.
Thank you for coming by to look at Annie’s work!
