A Book of Digital Art and Poetry
by Cheryl Baker
Art Exhibition in the Library until April 2016
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.
