Matthew Baker is a self taught artist.  He learned how to practice at a young age with classical trumpet lessons that I took for many years.  He’s adapted the same concept of musical practice to learning the craft of printmaking, illustration, songwriting, massage therapy and other stringed instruments including guitar and mandolin.

His artistic process is a spiritual process. Each step is so different and exciting and he learns and grows from each step. He takes all of his inspiration from nature and the process is a way of me connecting with the divine that permeates everything in nature.

Matthew lives in the seaside town of Portland Maine.
