 FIND OUT HOW ANDERS BAYLY IS EXPANDING THEIR* ART PRACTICE WITH THE HELP OF YES
 
Anders Bayly is a ceramics artist from Calgary, Alberta. Their unique handmade ceramics are fun, minimalist, and functional. Anders studied ceramics at the Alberta College of Art and Design where they dreamed of eventually making a living through their art. After graduation and a stay at the Medalta International Artists in Residence program, they moved to Montreal to begin their art practice in earnest. 

“When I first came to YES, I had just moved to Montreal,” they said. “I was struggling to understand the context of how things work here. I had no job and limited connections.” 
YES was there to help them with updating their CV and writing a business plan, among other things. 

 
The individual, personalized business coaching provided by the YES Artist Coach had the most impact. “Having a knowledgeable person look at my tiny seed of a business and give specific advice and encouragement was incredibly helpful”, they said. 

“My biggest struggle was self-confidence and I had to learn to believe that success is possible in order to have the confidence to actually leap towards my goals. I won't succeed every time, but I'm learning that it's worth it to try anyways.” 
“With the help of YES, I am now teaching ceramics, participating in craft markets like YES’s upcoming What The Pop! event, and working on launching my online store”. 

You can visit Anders online at www.baylycraft.com or follow them on Instagram @baylycraft. Anders will be exhibiting at What The Pop!: Old Port at Café des Arts (350 St Paul St E) on Saturday September 22 from 12PM-4PM.

*In this context, the term "their/them/they" is used as a gender-neutral pronoun.
