For Baker, painting is “poetry without words, music without sound and freedom without loss.” Through that personal quote, her abstract paintings convey her true self: a woman who is steadfast, strong, and absolute – and an artistic force. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Baker’s career began in the early 1940s with conversations with Dr. Barnes of the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania, having been awarded a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York City, and soon enough surrounded by the true greats of their time – Jackson Pollock, Robert Motherwell, Willlem de Kooning, the list goes on. “It has been my life and I work every day,” said Baker, who enjoys painting in her West Palm Beach studio.

“We are so pleased to have the opportunity to show Dina’s extraordinary works in our gallery,” said Rena Blades, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County. “Her show illustrates experimentation and expressiveness in style, form and color, and illustrates her life experience.“


Both Baker’s earliest works dating back to the 1940s, and works created throughout her expansive career have been featured in various prestigious national and international spaces, and many of her works are on display in several lauded permanent collections. Among the many galleries and museums that have featured Baker’s works are: Walter Wickiser Gallery, Inc., The Ezair Gallery, and the Adlung Gallery, in New York City and Brigham Young University, in Provo, Utah.
