Magda Baker

“I combine the printmaking mediums of collagraph, monotype, linocut, and aquatint to create prints full of pattern and color. The repeated shapes in my prints come from a diverse array of influences, including playing cards, nature, old books and magazines, and architectural details. I choose the subject matter of my figurative prints based on universality and charm.

In my most recent work, I combine printmaking and collage to depict devils who are both whimsical and slightly menacing. They are wearing either traditionally feminine or masculine attire, which takes a small jab at conventional gender roles.” 

Magda Baker has shown her prints in numerous galleries, including the Creative Arts Workshop in New Haven, Connecticut, the Edmonds Arts Commission in Edmonds, Washington, and Studio E in Seattle, Washington and at several universities, including University of Utah, University of Richmond, College of Notre Dame of Maryland, Loyola University, and the Pacific Northwest College of Art. She has a print in the King County Portable Works Collection and has received a fellowship from Women’s Studio Workshop and a grant from Allied Arts.

Magda lives and works in Seattle.
