Art runs through our veins in alizarin crimson...
what we create
- Beverly Baker is an Atlanta based multi-media artist whose work is included in the permanent collections of Fernbank Museum of Natural History and the High Museum of Art as well as in private and public collections including several recent acquisitions by Birgit and David McQueen and by J.Rutherford Seidel, II.
Starting out as a textile designer in NYC during the late sixties when all things new and groovy were happening there, she was one of the designers who created the exotic animal print movement. A love of patterns and natural resources continues to inspire her work in drawings, paintings, photography and most recently, print making.
Terrific new developments in archival printing techniques have enabled Beverly to use the computer to invent new spins on the representation of time honored flora and fauna. This mix of traditional painting and drawing techniques combined with computer generated effects creates unique images with new natural history stories to tell.
Beverly is active in the Atlanta arts community having served as a founding member on the boards of the Atlanta Photography Group, The High Museum of Art's Photo Forum, and as former Vice President and Chairman of the board of Art Papers as well as on the advisory board of the Hambidge Center of Georgia. Beverly's current projects include writing a mystery novel steeped in art history and exhibiting at Blue Heron Nature Preserve as well as the annual Art Papers Art Auction.
