“Bailee's work invokes pure delight. Young or old, her pieces make people smile. I dare say they make people happy”
— Kristan Cuhran Fuller, customer
Bailee Ann Steinmetz got her first camera, an SLR, at age 15. Over the last fifteen years she has been documenting spontaneous moments that happen in life, using only natural lighting and the surrounding space. Her journalistic style has earned her a few jobs shooting weddings and other events, including those celebrated by the LGBT community.
Bailee started her crochet sculpture business about a year and a half, in the summer of 2016. Since then she has quickly created a portfolio of striking and unique crochet sculptures. Recently, she has participated in local artisan events such as DIYpsi, and the Flint art walk. Bailee's high-impact sculptures were also featured in curated exhibitions hosted by the Riverside Arts Center, and the Threads Art and Music Festival.
She currently lives and works in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
