Eleanor Baker

Hi! I'm an Austin-based artist who loves to experiment with materials and unexpected colors. My style is always changing and features everything from mixed-media Texas landscapes to colorful abstract desert plants. 

Many of my pieces are inspired by road trips across Texas, from the mountains of Big Bend National Park to the rolling landscapes of the hill country. I was born in Houston and our family moved around a bit -- I eventually made it back to Austin to go to UT. Besides an 18-month stint in Chattanooga for my husband's work, I've been in Austin ever since.

I live in a tiny house with my sweet husband, daughter, and soon-to-be baby boy. When I'm not painting, you'll find me going down playground slides or splashing in the cool water of Deep Eddy. 

I'm inspired every day by the vibrant scenery of Central Texas and new artists I find on Instagram. I hope my work brings you joy and adds a bit of color to your life. :)

Cheers and thank you!

Eleanor
