About the artist

Bailey Coady is a Canadian illustrator and multidisciplinary visual artist. Her work focuses on identity and its relationship with the body and society. With a passion for increasing transgender visibility, Bailey’s art advocates for diverse representation. Working primarily in graphite and digital media, Bailey has two distinct styles that she uses when drawing: grayscale photo-realistic drawings and graphic, pastel illustrations.


Bailey has a keen interest in exploring new mediums and has begun to incorporate sewing, textiles and animation into her work. Bailey is studying illustration at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and is currently based in Vancouver on the unceded, traditional and ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
