ABOUT SUZIE BAKER

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising and Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University. Following my degree program, I worked as an ad agency Art Director before trading my Pantone swatches for a brush and palette.

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. When I'm not painting, I'm thinking about what I want to paint next. I can't not paint.

Commissions

When you commission me to paint your portrait, you're embarking on a journey. Whether your painting is an expressive, quick sketch or a formal full length portrait, these paintings become a treasured piece of history and are passed down for countless generations.

The sizes of these paintings as well as your investment are approximate and are meant to serve as initial talking points when we begin to discuss your portrait commission. Your final investment is based on my interview with you, the number of subjects in the painting, and its size and complexity. In some cases travel fees, framing charges, shipping charges, or taxes may apply.
