Bailey VanKirk

Oil Painter and Gallery Owner

   I grew up on the Marblehead Peninsula, and spent my summers roaming the beach and fishing on Lake Erie, or along the docks at my family’s marina. 

   I graduated from Danbury in 2004 and attended Kent State University, where I focused on painting and honed my techniques before graduating in 2008 with Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art and Painting.

   In 2014, I inherited Desdemona’s from my mother, Artist Laura A. Brown, when I was able to return to the peninsula, an area that has served as endless inspiration for my photorealist style oil paintings. 

   I purchased my current location; a century old building in the historic and picturesque village, and I am thrilled to call Marblehead home.
