Grace Bailey is an artist whose work explores the concepts of power, beauty and empathy and their relationship with one another, underpinned by a range of portrait treatments and purposes.
I’ve been in Redding, California at Bethel School of Worship now for a week, having a blast.
When I get home, I’ve been invited to exhibit a painting at the Sparc Creative Conference in Sydney on the first weekend of August. The painting should reflect a line or a word in a poem by Francis of Assisi.
Then it’s off to Cairns for a six week artist in residency, around the theme of the unseen workers and plants of the Cairns Botanic Gardens.
The day after I return from Cairns, I have another worship conference, this time in Ballarat and then three over the ensuing three weeks, including one in New Zealand.
