"Amadea Bailey is an expressionist painter. Big, bold, adventurous and free are words that can be used to describer her life as well as her layered mixed media paintings. She was born in Germany and spent her childhood years in a small town outside of Nairobi, Kenya. Schooled at Yale University, she now resides in Los Angeles. A full time artist, she is represented in numerous public and private collections across the country, including that of Halle Berry who owns six of her works. "
