GAIL BAKER grew up sleeping with and eating a box of 64 crayons. The 64th crayon was maroon. It made her sick so she threw it in the trash. These days maroon is just fine… so are puce, chartreuse and celandine. She revels in color and paints in acrylic paints with layers of acrylic medium for depth and texture. Oil pastels, collage pieces, stamping, and scraping are used. Gail paints to recapture her life in her personal and idiosyncratic language. She believes that the deepest, most meaningful connections we can make happen when we express ourselves in the language of creative process. This is why Gail facilitates classes in Process Painting, Visual Journaling, Drawing, Touch Drawing, and Painting. Her formal art training was done at the U of Washington in graphic arts. She earned an M.A. at the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology, Creative Expression. Gail has been teaching since 1980 in public and private settings in Alaska and Washington. She worked with the Arts Ed Consortium in Alaska, focusing on integrating the arts into classroom subjects and facilitated painting classes at the Sitka Fine Arts Camp. Gail teaches for Seniors Creating Art andSeniors Making Art Program, at several galleries and in her studio. She is thoroughly convinced that the arts offer a powerful tool for transformation of the individual and society. Let go and grow! GailBakerArtMaker.com
