Cathy Hutchinson Baker rocketed to fame after winning a San Francisco Chronicle Junior Art Championship in the mid ‘50s. With her rendition of the pilgrims’ first Thanksgiving, she began a long and lucrative career as a fine artist. Well not exactly. She actually became enamored with language, received a degree in Comparative Literature from UC Berkeley, and put aside her crayons until she retired from many years of working in publications. A lifelong appreciation of art and two classes in pastels at the College of Marin gave her a base for venturing out into the world of art on her own. Cathy currently works in both pastel and oil, often beginning her pieces en plein air and finishing them up in her corner of the family’s barn. She has lived in the San Geronimo Valley for 33 years and hopes to paint the landscape of the Valley and West Marin for many years to come.
