Bio
Born and raised in rural New York, Bayla has been incessantly painting and drawing the people and environments around her since the day she could first hold a crayon. Her work is primarily in watercolors and depicts whimsical illustrations of botanical and zoological subjects, as well as some portraiture. Bayla has had her work displayed in numerous exhibits, galleries, and museums across the country, including the Yale Peabody Museum, Missoula Art Museum, Arts Center of the Capital Region in Troy NY, and the U.S. Botanic Garden in Washington D.C. Her work has been featured on album covers, product packaging, in museum displays, and even on an oil tank along Interstate 95. Bayla currently lives and works in New Haven Connecticut with a Scientist, a parrot, a chameleon, six poison dart frogs, a salamander, and a snake to keep her company.

Artist Statement
Watercolorist Bayla Arietta enjoys working on both scientific illustration subjects as well as some portraiture. Inspired by muses such as Audubon, Haeckel and Andrew Wyeth, Bayla takes inspiration from environmental issues, scientific articles, excursions to Alaska, the color brown, and walks in the woods. Using tiny brushes and many layers of paint to create whimsical and intricate illustrations of botanical and zoological subjects, or the faces of familiar friends, Bayla revels in capturing the meticulous detail and intricacies of the natural word.
