Project Description


suzanne baker

Suzanne Baker is an Oakland artist and craftista who creates one-of-a-kind pieces of functional and decorative art using bits and pieces of reclaimed items – skirts, scarves, discarded paintings and drawings, kimonos, album covers, frames – in combination with new materials. She uses these materials to create appliquéd pillows, cameo silhouettes, collage art and other Suki creations, all characterized by a graphic collage aesthetic and bold colors. Of all the bits and pieces caught in the wake of creating her art – the tag of a thrifted tie, a piece of fabric’s selvage edge, the colorful snips of paper left over  – almost nothing is wasted. In fact, these discards have inspired some of her favorite pieces.

Suzanne’s work will be featured at the Rare Bird on Thursday, November 21, 2013.
