Her Majesty The Queen - 2011

Official Artist

2012 Olympic Games

Darren Baker is a hyper-realism artist producing works of art comparable to photography.

The techniques employed by Darren to achieve such fantastic results have been developed and perfected over decades of dedicated hard work. Said by many to be the best of his kind and probably the finest art draftsman of our generation.

The Worlds Greatest Equine Artist

A Very Modern  “Old Master”

Darren Baker is now acknowledged as one of the leading painters of the classical realism genre, and his style displays the influences of both the Dutch masters and the contemporary realist school. Inspired by Ansel Adams and the methods of Vermeer, Darren Bakers’s deep rooted love of fine detail, draw upon the symmetry and contrast of the human and mechanical lens, and of course, represent the power of techniques developed and perfected over 30 years.

The process of each work of art takes several hundred hours to complete.

Leanne Baker Trust

A much loved daughter, sister, fiancé, aunt and friend, sadly took her own life on 2nd June 2013. Bubbly and life-loving on the outside, Leanne was hiding a deep sadness. Clinical depression is a cruel illness that often leaves its victims feeling desperate, anxious and alone. Leanne struggled with this illness for some years before she could cope no more. At a time of her life where, to everyone else, she seemed to have everything going for her; a new home, planning her dream wedding, loving family, manager of a store, loads of friends; it seems even crueler that the unpredictable nature of clinical depression meant that she could not see past the darkness.

As a kind and giving person, Leanne’s family and friends thought the best way to commemorate her life would be start a charity that raised awareness and helped support those effected by mental illness. We would love to have your support. All funds go to supporting the work of the Leanne Baker Trust
