Beverly Baker in Skirt Magazine

Latitude artist Beverly Baker featured in May's Skirt Magazine

Beverly is an extraordinary artist who recently exhibited her work in Paris, France and is represented by the Edward Edlin Gallery in NYC. She works hard and is rewarded—finally.”– Nominated by Bruce Burris, co-executor, Latitude Arts Community

Beverly, a Versailles artist with Down syndrome, channels her inspiration five days a week at Latitude—a Lexington arts program for people with disabilities. A caring soul, Beverly often references her family in her vibrant drawings; one piece sold recently in New York for $1,300. “She’s a true artist,” Bruce says. “She makes decisions and choices, and her work changes. It isn’t stagnant.”
