Artist's Statement

After many years Matt Baker has returned to his first love - painting. Recently retired from the aerospace industry, his focus returns to the fine arts.

A chance introduction to The Yellow Barn’s Open Studio, along with subsequent classes and workshops, he has expanded his subjects in Plein Air and figurative painting. He finds interest in many daily aspects of life, especially if culture or history is involved. His approach is to employ an eclectic range of styles that fit the mood of his subjects.

He is actively involved with several community art associations and competitions. Besides local shows and commissions, his work hangs in private collections from Boston, MA to Myogi, Japan. Matt’s main goals are to develop a style that is unique, interesting to the viewer and to enjoy many rewarding hours of painting.

Recent Exhibitions:
He is active in several art associations in the Northwest Montgomery County area and enjoys expanding his awareness of the many variations of art.
