Janelle Baker

From childhood I have enjoyed a very rich inner life. As an adult, I am compelled by honest storytelling, filled with sparks of hope. I constantly search for the deeper meanings and patterns hidden within a life fully lived. From this internal symbolic language, I seek to create art with high regard for the compelling journey of the human spirit
