Linda Anne Baker
|Description of your art form|
Linda's curiosity and drive to create have led her down many artistic paths, including Chinese brush painting, watercolour, mixed media, printmaking, collage, photography and fibre art.
Linda’s work is inspired by the extraordinary beauty seen in the world around us. Loss, the passage of time, transformation and the ephemeral nature of life are themes she finds deeply moving. These subjects naturally lend themselves to treatments involving ambiguity, suggestion and symbolism. Evocative images connect people with nature in a way that highlights the need for preserving the natural world and its creatures. She delights in the joy of seeing and capturing magical moments, and is particularly drawn to the allure and colour of birds, flowers and landscapes, as well as abstract images.
Since moving to Victoria in 2005, Linda has participated in the Sooke Fine Art Show, Moss Street Paint-In, West Shore and West Saanich Studio Tours, the SPAC (Saanich Peninsula Arts & Crafts Society) Spring Show, Arts at Glendale Gardens, as well as shows in the Massey Gallery of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Metchosin House, Goldstream Nature House, Monterey Centre and Goward House. Her work was on display at the Coast Collective from 2009-16.
Winner of multiple awards in many national and international competitions, Linda’s artwork has been published in magazines such as Islands, Seasons, Lake Superior, Photo Life, Canadian Camera, WildBird and Birds of the Wild, as well as in three books.
