In 2000 Baber graduated as a mature Fine Art student after five years of study which included an Art and Design Foundation course. Baber previously worked as a designer of celebration cakes, writing books and producing videos. In addition, she travelled extensively giving lectures, workshops and demonstrations around the world, including Iceland, India and Singapore. Along the way she picked up new ideas, later incorporating them into her work. Baber’s favourite discipline is painting, experimenting with a variety of media. She considers drawing to be a cornerstone of her practice in addition to exploring colour and texture in her work.
