A word from the Artist / Teacher:
Hi y’all I’m Hailey! Painting has always been an outlet for me to lose myself in thought and purpose. I love experimenting with color and light. The bright colors of the Gulf Coast sunsets, beaches, and birds as well as the dancing grasses and dunes helped shape my style early on. I am not a perfect painter but always growing and learning. Let’s go on a painting journey together!
