About Mary Baker

"A contemporary realist painter, she captures, with lifelike precision, the stillness of the Plum Island marshes, the petals of a bright yellow iris in the South End, apple blossoms clinging to a brick wall at the old gardens at Maudslay State Park and the Common Pasture, its vista unchanged by centuries."

"Putting things in perspective," by Ulrika G. Gerth, The Newburyport Current

Digital Artwork

In 2012 Mary Baker decided to take a year and experiment with digital art. The process turned out to be a lot more complicated, and a lot more interesting than she ever imagined. Since December 2012, Mary has been exploring this wonderful new medium, which at times to her seems completely magical.

All 20 digital images for Newburyport Big Skies can be found here.

The process and progress of the new digital artwork can be found both on her Mary Baker Art Facebook Page, as well as on the Art Blog.
