KiptonART Featured Artist: Emily Baker

Emily Baker is a KiptonART artist who lives and works in New York City. Take this opportunity to read her answers to the five questions we ask every artist.

Who/what is your biggest influence or inspiration right now?
Right now, I am currently working on a series of paintings that I refer to as "Road trip". My source of inspiration is photographs I have taken over the years of views from the car- and people staring out the window, lost in thought and the scenery before them.

What is the first thing that comes to mind after an opening?
What am I going to paint next?

Why did you choose this medium?
For a long period of time, I concentrated mostly on watercolors- always working to push the boundaries of how to control such an unpredictable medium. But in recent years I have turned to oils as a new challenge, finding that they are better suited to the images that I choose to paint lately, which tend to have more extreme light conditions.
