Alix Baker


Website:http:// www.alixbaker.com / Style: Marine/landscape/figure/semi-abstractMaterials: Oil/acrylic/watercolour Location: Goodworth Clatford, Hampshire

Price range: £400

After serving in the FCO, Alix spent most of her art career as one of the UK’s leading military artists and uniform experts with work in collections, museums and organisa-tions worldwide. She has written for numerous journals and her illustrations or battle maps can be found in several military history books. Now she paints people and places at home and abroad in contemporary styles. One speciality is the Middle East and Oman where she has lived. Another is marine sub-jects: her grandfather was a marine artist but having met only once she assumes this particular artistic bent is in her DNA. Having spent the past on very detailed research, she enjoys exploring ideas and materials where she can feel unfettered. Some highlights: work used in a West End play and in television dramas, often the subject of study by GCSE and A level students, a very large series of paintings for HM Sultan Qaboos bin Said of Oman, profiled by BBC’s ‘Woman’s Hour’ and The Daily Telegraph, selected as the small business by The Times’ business section in 1995 to mark Second World War VE and VJ anniversary, the guest speaker in 2011 at the An-nual Awards to art students by the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainters. She was very honoured to be the first woman and non-Armed Forces person to be Chairman of the Armed Forces Art Society which includes a number of well-known artists. Alix judges and helps with exhibitions, is on the organising committees of several art societies, writes articles on art as a hobby or profession, and runs websites and Face-book pages for several art organisations.
