    April 2018: Suzie Baker

    Suzie Baker Squint portraitProfessional artist Suzie Baker exclaims, “I can't NOT paint!” She’s always thinking of what to paint next. Suzie has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising and Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University.

    Following her degree program, Suzie worked as an ad agency Art Director before becoming a full time painter.

    Suzie says, “I paint in oils and am motivated by color, immediacy of stroke, composition, the camaraderie of other artists, and ultimately the desire to evolve as an artist. I strive to create paintings that communicate confidence in execution and that exhibit a fresh, intuitive, and spontaneous quality. I will paint till I can paint no more.”

    Suzie is a board member as well as signature member of Oil Painters of America. She is also Signature Member of the following: the Portrait Society of America, American Impressionist Society, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, Outdoor Painters Society, and American Women Artists.

    Suzie has also won many awards, most recently, the Telluride Plein Air Artists Choice/Best in Show, 2017.
