    Diana Baker
    Born in Newcastle NSW I have been involved in painting since primary school days. However, travelling with my family all over the world at an early age I followed a different career path for some years, although I did continue my art studies when time allowed. After living abroad for 15 year, I returned to Australia in 1986. I now live a rural lifestyle in the Hunter Valley with my partner, a professional photographer, and two dogs and paint fulltime from my home studio.

    I work primarily in mixed media and collage. I love to experiment with different mediums and quite often begin without any subject in mind. As I add layers and collage the piece begins to 'talk to me'. I do tend to work in series, which to date include sea, landscape, interiors, ballet, etc.
