Who are you and what do you do?
I’m Rachelle Baker and I like to make things with my hands and sometimes with my voice.

When did you first start making art?
According to my mom, pretty much as soon as motor skills allowed me to hold a crayon. I’d say quite a bit after that.

When you think of the word riot, what comes to mind?
that a change needs to happen. Or Atari teenage riot i guess.

What drew inspiration for the artwork for this show?
I drew inspiration from old Japanese woodcut work and folklore, but I really love drawing cool, tough babes that refuse to take any shit!!

What are some artists or musicians that you admire?
my number one music goddess/favorite being is björk!! To me, she’s like some mythical sea-space creature and the way she combines visual elements with beautiful sounds makes my heart burst open. I also really love junko mizuno. She’s a Japanese illustrator and comic book artist and she draws very awesome babes that are both adorable and dangerous.
