About the Artist

Bethany Baker was raised in rural Ohio, home schooled in a farm house.  She loves to recount her days playing in the mud, running through the woods, playing inside and around an old hollowed out log, letting her mind be carried away of thoughts of fairies and trolls and goblins and good witches and bad witches.  

As the daughter of interracial parents, she has a firm understanding of multiple cultures and loves them all.  But she definitely leans toward simple living, growing your own food, wearing vintage clothes, shopping at Antique Malls and consignment stores, looking for just the right piece for her next art project, or for her living room.


Bethany is a past member of Starbrick Gallery in Nelsonville, Ohio. Her work was highly valued by many of our customers, who were captivated by her unique ability to capture ethnicity and mood.  Her paintings always gave the impression of motion and action.  Even her reflective scenes made one think of what might have come before or after.  We all miss Bethany very much and wish the best for her. - James Shirey
