I was deeply honoured that Sherry Joiner, renowned painter and author of Sherry Goes Sane: Living a Life with Schizo-Affective Disorder, chose to paint my portrait — and blown away at the result!
I asked Sherry for a few words to accompany her painting. Here’s what she said.
To a fascinating person, Martin Baker, an inspiration to many in the field of mental health. I enjoyed painting a portrait of you.
Thank you for appearing from the UK to sit for me while I painted. Even though you were invisble and we had never met before, a photo brought me closer to you and we connected on my masonite board. More people should meet like this!
