Bailey Saliwanchik is an artist, student, bartender, and behavioral health aide based in Portland, ME.  Her work focuses on dichotomy - she aims to create images that are both ambiguous and familiar, beautiful and uncomfortable, meticulous and accidental. She is a graduate of the University of Southern Maine with a double major in Studio Art and Psychology and is currently pursuing a graduate degree at Lesley University in Expressive Arts Therapy.
