Ann Baker was born in 1948 in England.
She is a self-taught artist who began to create in 2007 when she finished work
and entered by second childhood.
Her main genre is a type of
surreal where her compositions are inhabited by everyday objects arranged in
unexpected ways to create something playful, humorous, whimsical or absurd, and
where there is little or no meaning and not much sense and where it is left to
the viewer to make sense of what he/she sees.
If asked, she would say that her style is nothing more than ’Stuff and
Nonsense’ as can be found in Nonsense Poetry.
Her chosen medium is to create digitally
by means of Photoshop using her own photographs and the masses of copyright
free images to be found on the web. She is also passionate about iPhoneography
and create using her iPhone and the myriad of photo manipulation apps readily
The artist takes her inspiration from
many areas such as the patterns and random harmonies created by the lights, colours
and shapes in nature. She is also inspired by contemporary artists such as
Maggie Taylor, Liz Huston, Rafal Olbinski and Eduardo Recife. Oh, and of
course, the works of Lewis Carroll.
