Sue Baker


Suzanne Baker is a multi-talented professional with diverse interests and qualifications. An experienced Non-Executive Director (FAiCD) and Accountant (FCPA) she balances her business career with her creative Art practise.  A lifelong learner, her motivation is to make meaningful contributions to both the corporate and creative worlds.

She holds a Bachelor of Business and an Advanced Diploma in Naturopathy & Herbal Medicine. Her passion for the arts led her to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours and a Master of Fine Art and Design through the University of Tasmania’s Art School.  She furthered her knowledge and skill with courses at esteemed institutions like the National Arts School and the Julian Ashton School of Art.

Originally from the Sunshine Coast QLD Hinterland, Suzanne now calls Airlie Beach, Queensland, home, after having spent thirty years in Tasmania.

In addition to her academic pursuits and professional board appointments, Suzanne has contributed to the arts community in various capacities. She served as Treasurer and Past President of Tasmanian Regional Arts Incorporated, providing oversight of grant program management and regional art activities for the State. She also lent her financial and business expertise to the '10 Days on the Island Festival' Board as a Non-Executive Director and chaired the Tasmanian Design Development Board.  Suzanne currently volunteers her skills to several local organisations as Treasurer.

Suzanne's personal philosophy centres on the transformative power of art. She believes that art, in all its forms, is a universal mode of expression that fosters individualisation, communication, emotional connection and mental well-being. Her commitment to promoting art is as a catalyst for healthy minds and communities. Her vision revolves around a collective effort from governments, philanthropists, and communities to support all forms of art, thereby nurturing stronger societal bonds and healthier minds.

As an artist, Suzanne's work is an expression of her everyday experiences and surroundings. She practices the art of oil painting, infusing her pieces with realism tinged with a touch of surrealism. Her work conveys multi-layered, subliminal, and figurative references, inviting viewers to explore the unseen and imagined stories behind the images.
