Alisha Baker was born in Northern California and grew up in Washington, currently residing in North Seattle. She has spent most summers of her life traveling back to California to visit family and spend time at the ocean. Often road tripping, she has visited numerous beaches all along the west coast. The ocean has often been her artistic muse, those good memories along the water’s edge inspiring much of her work. Alisha has earned a degree in Graphic Design and Illustration from Seattle Central Community College, and has studied and practiced fine art her entire life. She has taken courses in drawing and painting at the Kirkland Arts Center, Gage Academy of Fine Arts, and most recently at the University of Washington, where she graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing.
