I am Sherrelle Bailey, a Graphic Artist, Painter and Children’s Illustrator based in the United Kingdom. I studied at Liverpool John Moores University and graduated in 2009 with a First Class Honours Degree in BA Graphic Arts (Illustration). I create illustrations to adorn cards and merchandise.
When I create something I welcome joy into my heart; I feel energized by new ways of thinking and seeing. I have a passion for painting. I like to capture a beautiful state of mind on paper and canvas. Art engages my mind; I believe it gives us the taste to explore the mysterious beauty of our imagination.
Favourite song lyric
‘It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
And I’m feeling good’
Nina Simone – ‘Feeling Good’
I’m inspired by
There is an ocean of things that inspire me, like crystalline drops each are unique and beautiful for a moment.
I gain inspiration from people, places, artists, music, poetry, cultures, nature and unconventional beauty. I sail the sea of my imagination and paint an edited version of those discoveries.
My icons past/present
My Mother and Grandmother. I admire sincere, everyday people, who believe in the beauty of their goals and make leaps of faith in pursuit of a better future.
