"...these brilliant, subtle and all too short-lived prints resonate in the mind long after one leaves the show. They are absolutely beautiful." The New York Times
“The monoprints, as do your other prints and installations, are beautiful but static objects, or collections of objects, placed to absorb our gaze. They have symmetry and order and quiet.” Art-Vetting Website
"Most-interestingly, Baker’s work alludes to our collective concept of natural material and our individual memories of these found objects..." AS: Artists Studios
"...the leaves are like a one-of-a-kind piece of paper containing a variety of Baker’s detailed, circular prints. In others, the leaves are unadorned by ink etchings but arranged in a pattern that highlights repetition as well as the leaf’s singular beauty." Brooklyn Daily Eagle
"We're enthralled with the arrangement and beauty of the work and her preservation of what is normally so fleeting." Apartment Therapy

My artwork incorporates the use of collected manmade objects, materials from nature and works on paper to create thematic series of individual artworks and installations that explore the impermanent and ephemeral nature of art.
