Publisher Eric Rhoads interviews Suzie Baker for the PleinAir Art Podcast.
Baker and her work can be seen at a large number of plein air events. Learn what she says are the pros and cons of having a busy schedule as an artist, and how she keeps track of it all. She also talks about how she and her husband moved to the Middle East, which was “like hitting a reset button” in her life. From there, she planned painting trips with other women and painted outdoors in places such as India.
Once they moved back to the U.S., she continued painting outdoors and eventually (and joyfully) discovered the plein air community through the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association. At that point she came to know professional plein air painters and see their amazing works, which have set the bar high. She asked herself, “What’s between me and that bar, and how do I get there?”
