Dotti Baker spent the past few decades raising her family and working in education. While she considered painting her original passion, she primarily expressed her creativity via crafts and creative learning tools. After moving to the art community at the Westinghouse Lofts, with the encouragement of her fellow "Lofties," Dotti began to paint again. She began taking classes at the Morelli Art Studio where she switched to oil painting. Inspired by her love nature, she focuses her oil paintings primarily on landscapes and wildlife. She continues to learn and try new subjects and mediums.
Her works have been displayed at The Westinghouse Lofts in Hyde Park and Till Wave Gallery in Watertown and the Walpole Library in Walpole. Dotti is retired and lives in Hyde Park.
