      Artist’s Bio

      “It can be a building, a marbled surface, or any part of Nature that catches my eye and I take those images and find the essence of each one. For me there is Spirit in all things.”   Cheryl Baker, 2015.

      Cheryl Baker is a North Vancouver-based artist and poet. She will successfully achieve her Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and a Business Administration Certificate at Capilano University in April, 2016. In her book Spirit Woman (2015), she showcases her manipulated photography and pairs it with poetry by Lyn O’Mara and Jennifer Abercrombie, in addition to her own works. 

      Cheryl was born in Langley, raised in Williams Lake and Victoria, and left home at age 18. She travelled across Canada by rail, settling in Montreal for four years. She now lives in the shadow of the Lions Gate Bridge on the Squamish Nation Reserve #5, with Calvin, her husband of 28 years. Cheryl has written poetry and short stories her entire life; however, her interest in photography dates to 2009 and the gift of a digital camera. 

      She manipulates her original photos of infrastructure such as cranes on the Vancouver waterfront and of aspects of Nature, and she is inspired by her love for Nature, trees, rocks and water to persuade viewers to consider a new perspective of familiar worlds.
