Brandon James Bailey was born on September 19, 1984 in Cheyenne Wyoming. Wildlife and Western art has always come naturally to Brandon, as he has been fascinated by both art and the outdoors for as long as he can remember.
Bailey has an intense interest in wildlife from all over the world. In the past couple years he has been invited to go to Africa and New Zealand to research various species, thus that fauna and flora have become important subjects in his works. "Going and living something makes it much more enjoyable to paint and draw that subject. It gives me that passion that I feel is the most important part to a piece of artwork. Seeing the animals and how they react in their natural environment is key in creating an interesting scene that is true to that animal and their environment," states the artist.
