His identity since elementary school is one of a creator collecting colors, sounds and shapes along the way. His concept of painting has been focused in the abstract as early as he can remember. He found the concept and format most comfortable. With a bachelor’s degree in fine arts and business administration Baker entered the workforce. His first career was in wholesale apparel sales and segued into the food service management. Throughout these years away from creating art daily he continued to draw and paint on weekends. After leaving the food business Baker established an artistic wall mural business directed to the interior decorative trade. Now self-employed Baker’s trade connections helped him to start exhibiting and producing a fine art following for his work. His work not only was sold on canvas and paper, but he had developed a new direction of creating on wood panels.
