Hi there! I'm Baylie, and when I was little, the first thing I wanted to be when I grew up was a cartoonist.
I love all things creative - drawing, making, coloring, painting, dreaming. I believe that children in particular deserve to feel proud of something they've created.
My approach to art is founded on kindness over accomplishment, process over product, and the importance of curiosity.
Now that I'm a grown up, I'm not a cartoonist, but have spent almost 10 years running a graphic design and illustration studio called Red Umbrella Designs.
Additionally, I am a certified Montessori Classroom teacher, and find my greatest joy and purpose when I get to follow my creativity, rediscover childlike curiosity, and be inspired by the natural world.
