Australian artist, Sarina Baker, was born in Towoon Bay on the Central Coast of New South Wales. Trained in fine art, textile, and graphic design in Sydney, she is internationally known for her unique style of painting in mixed media, incorporating collage, gouache, acrylics, oils, inks, cement, sand, and pastels. Sarina has the unique ability to transcend creative boundaries of artistic media. She embraces new media and uses it as an opportunity to amplify the universe of her experience. Sarina's mother was an art teacher who involved her in every facet of creative art. Upon graduation from Sydney College of the Arts, she started as a freelance designer, producing everything from book covers, annual reports, and corporate identity packages to sports and surfwear. Following a successful exhibition of her fine art paintings, she decided to focus on her artwork and murals which gave her more scope and creative satisfaction. Since then she has easily made the transition to full time artist and has been extremely successful in attracting many corporate commissions. Her work incorporates ideas from both her travels and her love of the ocean, as well as her desire to create designs using fruit, flowers and object d'art producing a harmony of composition and color that is totally individual.
