Jaana Baker is multi-disciplinary artist based in Southern California. She works primarily as a painter and photographer, but her work also delves into installation and soft sculpture. She earned her B.F.A. in Drawing and Painting from California State University Fullerton.
In 2021, she won the coveted solo show spot at the Brea Gallery’s “Made in California” exhibit, where she exhibited “Poppies and Sampaguitas,” a body of work which focused on exploring her identity as a Filipino-American woman.
In addition to her work in the fine arts, Jaana is also a published illustrator and photographer, and loves to design textile patterns for her online shop. She also loves plein air painting, and she considers it an integral part of her art practice.
Currently, she is working from her studio in the arts district in Santa Ana, California.
