I'm Barb Baker a 68 year old retired mother of two.I am married to a wonderful man for 15 years.
I love to draw cats, dogs,children and celebrities.I took art in high school for 3 years but I am pretty much self taught in what I draw now since we didn't learn how to draw portraits in class. We learned a little about every media but we were never taught how to draw faces which is my specialty. I draw portraits for people, of their children and pets. Just recently I have tried drawing celebrities and discovered I really like doing that as well.
I am a newcomer to Fine Art America.
I have been drawing portraits for some time now and have decided that I would like to try and sell a few of my portrait prints.
They are all done in a mix of charcoal and graphite pencil. I will have more coming.
I was hesitant to enter my work because of all the fantastic artists on here that I cannot in any way, shape, or form compete with. But I thought why not give it a shot. Your never to old to try something new. Right?
I also love taking pictures of almost anything with my little Fuji camera. I will be entering some of the pictures I have taken over the years that I think are especially good.
I also draw portraits for anyone who would like for a small fee. Example: children, pets and your favorite celebrities
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org Just send me a good photo to work from and I can have your portrait done within a day or two.
I am very reasonably priced knowing the economy we are all living in!!
Thank you so much for your interest in my work!!
