About me


Welcome, I'm Bayista, the artist and creative visionary behind the Indispensable Artist brand. I'm a multifaceted illustrator, calligrapher, and potter who calls the tranquil Philadelphia suburbs home, where I share my life with my husband and two beautiful children.

To me, art is a breath of fresh air in this fast-paced world, providing me with much-needed tranquility and a way to connect with my children through their boundless imaginations. It fills my heart with joy to see their eyes light up as they explore the world through their own unique perspective.

As an artist, my mission is to inspire others and bring a sense of peace and happiness into their lives through my creations. I want my art to remind you to slow down and appreciate the beauty in the world around you. To encourage you to stop worrying about perfection and instead embrace your unique creative voice. And to remind you that we all have the capacity to create something that brings joy and happiness into the world.




Art has always been my solace, my escape, and my way of connecting with the world. As a child, I remember losing myself for hours, drawing still-life objects and my favorite characters from movies. But despite my love for art, my parents never considered it a practical career choice, and so, I pursued an MBA instead.

It wasn't until I became a mother that I rediscovered my passion for creating. Struggling with postpartum depression, I stumbled upon a video on YouTube showcasing card-making techniques. Intrigued, I ordered some supplies and got to work. The feeling of a paintbrush in my hand and colors flowing onto the paper was like a balm to my soul, and I knew that I had found my way back to what I had always loved.

Since then, I have immersed myself in the world of art, taking countless online and in-person classes and exploring different mediums. It has been a journey of self-discovery and a way for me to connect with the world around me.

In 2019, a friend asked me to create a house portrait for her client, and I felt a sense of joy that I hadn't felt in years. It was a turning point for me, a reminder that my passion for art was never too far away. Today, I offer house portraits and calligraphy commissions, and it brings me immense joy to create pieces that bring happiness and beauty into people's homes.

So, if you have a vision in mind, I would be honored to bring it to life. Let's create something beautiful together.
