about

Deedra Baker was born in El Dorado, KS in 1989. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2011, from Washburn University in Topeka, KS and her Master of Fine Arts with a photography concentration and intermedia secondary concentration at Texas Woman's University in 2016.

Her creative work explores themes of femininity, gender roles, personal and psychological spaces, and self-identity. Throughout her oeuvre she has made artwork with portraiture, self-portraiture, still lifes, and landscapes, while using various media from photography, video, printing processes, bookmaking, and works on paper. Deedra's latest body of work, Ties That Bind, has broadened to investigate the lineage of the feminine and explore the nexus of her family through three generations of females. The work includes color photographs, video, and a one-of-a-kind artist's book that acts as an extension of the traditional family archive of snap shots, while it considers relationships, family traditions, rituals, and the connection to the family home.

Deedra currently lives in Denton, TX ,where she is Associate Faculty [Non-Tenure Track] at Collin College and Adjunct Faculty at Texas Woman's University, teaching artist's bookmaking, studio photography, and the history of photography. She is the Artistic Director for Art Room, a creative, curatorial team based in Fort Worth, TX.
