“To me, any artistic endeavour is about more than getting a drawing onto paper. It enables you to find a way to discover who you are, forcing you to deal with yourself. This can be difficult, as it’s something many do not want to do. Throughout my journey of self discovery I have explored my sexuality and gender persona. To this day, I am still exploring all the different paths life has to offer, and I want to offer my strength to all those brave enough to question and grow. No matter who you are or what you do- you are valid. So just express yourself as well as you can and how you want. If something makes you happy you shouldn’t feel bad for who you are or what you do.”

While the artistic world will always have a place in her art, Bailee has recently been contemplating a career in the military.
