Suzanne Baker

The thirty years Suzanne spent living and working with her husband and children on ranches in California and Nevada and as a horse packer and guide in the high sierra of California has given her a good basis for knowing horses and ranch life. These experiences, along with her avid love of photography, drive her to document the many places, people, and situations of ranch life she has experienced.

Her formative years were spent growing up among ranchers, adventurers, and artists in the foothills outside Sequoia National Park in California. The community, her very talented mother, and numerous college art courses, were a big part of her art education and love of art.

Suzanne’s work has appeared many places over the years, such as the galleries that have represented her work: El Prado Galleries in Sedona, Arizona, Legacy Gallery, and Sage Creek Gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It has appeared in publications such as Southwest Art, Art of the West, Rocky Mountain Rider, Range Magazine, Cowboys and Indians, Western Horseman, Western Traditions: Contemporary Artists of the American West by Michael Duty and Suzanne Deats and Art of the American West by Caroline Linscott and Julie Christianen-Dull. It has been a privilege for Suzanne to be a part of wonderful art shows such as: Night of Artists at the Briscoe Western Art Museum and the first Cowgirl Up! at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum.
