Adrian Baker

Canadian painter exploring issues on climate change through themes of humanity and nature

Adrian’s art is informed by science, Indigenous environmental philosophies, and knowledge garnered from on-site explorations and investigations in wilderness settings. Working with both found natural materials and manufactured mediums, she creates visual commentaries on the wonders of the natural world that promote appreciation for our non- human kin. Her work initiates reflection on the connections between humanity and nature, conveying a message of optimism for the future. 

A native of Canada, Adrian was in Montreal, earned a BFA in Toronto, Ontario, and her MFA in Vancouver, B.C. Her paintings have been exhibited in solo and juried shows in Canada and the U.S. and have been featured in international publications. In 2009 she was selected to be the artist-in- residence for the Bermuda Masterworks Museum. Adrian has received numerous federal and municipal government commissions to create outdoor public art installations. Her collaborative fibre art installation ‘NetWork’ was one of the ten finalists for the 2021 Berlin Social Arts Award. Throughout her career, Adrian has been teaching art classes and workshops, and delivering lectures to art associations. Committed to art activism, she regularly donates artwork and curates art events for non-profit organisations.
