Margaret Baker - Mixed Media

Mixed Media art is an exercise in paper hoarding and perpetually sticky fingers. I love it. I sometimes design my own paper using a Gell plate but have also used, maps, wrapping paper, tickets, post cards, old stamps and once, a wasp nest. I do a lot of searching, looking for the right color, texture or image that will make a composition click. It’s satisfying like solving a puzzle. I can’t believe it when someone refers to me as an artist, cause really I’m just a girl who likes to get materials together, make a mess and have fun.
