Suzie Baker has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Advertising and Fine Arts from Louisiana Tech University. Following
her degree program, she worked as an ad agency Art Director before trading her Pantone swatches for a brush and palette. She paints in oils and is motivated by color, immediacy of stroke, composition, the camaraderie of other artists, and ultimately the desire to evolve as an artist. She strives to create paintings that communicate confidence in execution and that exhibit a fresh, intuitive, and spontaneous quality. She will paint till she can paint no more. When she is not painting, she is thinking about what she wants to paint next.

Commissions:
"When you commission me to paint your portrait, you're embarking on a journey. Whether your painting is an expressive, quick sketch or a formal full length portrait, these paintings become a treasured piece of history and are passed down for countless generations. The sizes of these paintings as well as your investment are approximate and are meant to serve as initial talking points when we begin to discuss your portrait commission. Your final investment is based on my interview with you, the number of subjects in the painting, and its size and complexity. In some cases travel fees, framing charges, shipping charges, or taxes may apply. Quick Sketch - $750 A quick, impressionistic portrait of the subject's head only with an abstract background and a loose interpretation of the neck and collar area and painted in one 3-4 hour sitting. Your investment starts at $750 for a 9" x 12" painting. Larger sizes are available depending on your needs and budget. Head and Shoulders Portrait - $1,500 An impressionistic portrait of the subject's head and shoulders only with an abstract background. Your investment starts at $1,500 for a 11" x 14" painting. Larger sizes up to 16" x 20" are available. 3/4 Length Portrait Including Hands - $3,000 An impressionistic portrait of the subject's head, shoulders, chest, arms and hands.
