North Carolina based artist Sandi Baker continually experiments with mediums and themes but her work always comes back to wildlife. With a fierce love of the natural world she has painted original large scale acrylic portraits of wild creatures since 1991. The artist believes her work to be a meditation, or a inspiration of oneness with creation. She hopes to bring the personality of her subjects to the viewer as well as bring attention to endangered wildlife. Carefully studying her animal subjects, she has worked closely with many wild animal sanctuaries throughout her career. Her work, ranging from stylized and abstract to bordering on photorealistic has a collector base that spans the globe. Specializing in freehand airbrush techniques using acrylics, she also incorporates brushes, sponges, and other traditional and not so traditional art tools into her work. She works mainly on hand stretched canvas but also utilizes metals and leather as substrates. Married to fellow artist JW Baker she continues to paint and the couple have various venues together.
