Creative Vision

Bayda's art is inspired by the roles she fulfills. 

Artist

"I come from a family of artists and always loved creating. Over the years, I've practiced drawing, Asian Brush painting, Saori Weaving, printmaking, and sculpture. In recent years, I've exhibited across New England. Making art keeps me sane and happy."​

Humanist

"Being a woman growing in the Middle East, I experienced discrimination and sexism, and I empathized with the poor and the disadvantaged. Since 2014, I've been advocating for disadvantaged groups through my annual forum, Healing Fibers. Each year we address an issue that requires attention. 

Visionary

"After years of immersion in Asian art and culture, I developed an interest in Asian gardens. This interest slowly evolved into a passion project: Create a tranquil outdoor space for artists with a variety of Asian horticulture, architecture, and wildlife. To fulfill this vision, I've now recruited a group of professionals who are aiding me in the realization of my dream."

Educator

"I've always loved to teach a variety of things from ESL to belly dancing. I now focus on educating both children and adults at the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts, where I teach Asian brush painting at all levels."​
