Jeanette Crawford Baird
For me, my painting is about learning to see light in new and different ways, how it affects color and form. It is about developing a deeper way of expressing myself that hopefully, resonates with the viewer. As I grow as an artist, obtaining clarity of sight has become exciting. I paint in both acrylics and oils, with my passion being portraiture, especially vintage photos. There is something that resonates with me in trying to capture the gesture and expression of a person at a precise moment in time.
Currently, I am exhibiting with a group of seven artists –Bay Area Studio Artists (BASA) as well as curating several solo shows for the upcoming year. Art has become an incredible focus in my life as I see where this journey may take me. I feel like I have discovered my voice through my painting. What an incredible experience!
