Paintings by Mia Baila

“Autumn in Mendenhall”

“I paint the glaciers and surrounding fjords (glacier avenues, I call them) because I love them, know that most of them are receding, and want to stop a little time in my paintings of them. I am mostly drawn to paint the ones I’ve seen in Alaska, I guess because they seem closer to me and many are tidewater glaciers which brings water into the mix…another of my favorite subjects.”  — Mia Baila

Mia Baila is a Portland, Oregon based artist who returns frequently to the fjords of Alaska to photograph and paint stunning glacier-scapes!
