Artist Statement Sandra Dee Baker is an self-taught Black American collage artist who discovered her interest for abstract artistic expression in art therapy venues over 4 years ago.

There is movement in all her work. She loves working with bold and vibrant colors and mainly works in watercolor, acrylic, and ink.

It captures her despair and her pursuit for healing, truth and life. Sandra continues to explore these various themes in all of her work and is looking forward to seeing what will emerge next on the journey.
