Gail Baker is a professional artist who received her MA from the Institute for Transpersonal Psychology in 2000 in Psychology with an emphasis on creative expression, learning styles, multiple intelligences. She has taught children and adults in private and public settings in Washington and Alaska for 28 years. As part of Alaska’s Art Education Consortium, she taught teachers how to integrate visual arts with education standards. At the Sitka Fine Arts Camp (June 2008) she taught a two-week process painting course and an abstract painting course for teens where 200 large, original final paintings were exuberantly displayed.
Gail’s abstract and figurative paintings, leather salmon sculptures, and jewelry show at our retail gallery as well as Donterra Gallery in Sisters, Oregon; Half Moon Creek Gallery in Anchorage, Alaska; Kirkland Arts Center; and Fireweed Gallery in Homer, Alaska.
She also teaches leather mask making, visual journaling, drawing, and painting in her Issaquah studio. Gail’s main goal is to encourage students to trust themselves, explore, and ENJOY creating original, unique pieces — to find the excitement, depth, and joy of creativity.
