She ministers creativity while supporting creatives in finding their vision and creating business by working one-on-one in spiritual counseling sessions and workshops. She employs color psychology and color strategies in concepting & executing brands for business. “If you hear a voice within you saying, ''You are not a painter,'' then by all means paint… & that voice will be silenced.” Van Gogh.

“Steph and I taught a workshop together on Creativity and Inspiration at the Visual Art Center of Richmond. She brought some great ideas to the table about color theory, word association, goal setting, and relaxation. She came to all our planning meetings prepared with well researched information about learning styles, cultural interpretations of art, and her own thoughtful ideas about art and life.” Aimee Joyaux, Director of Education, Visual Art Center of Richmond
“Steph Baker is amazing. I don't know how she does it, but she was able to translate my poor description of what I wanted into a logo design that invoked deep sobbing when I saw it the first time. It was as if my whole life's work was seen and felt in that image. Then Steph made it easy for me by making suggestions for what to do next and how to do it in ways that solved my needs beautifully while meeting my budget. Not stopping there, Steph provided more ideas for how to incorporation the new look and feel into my website with simple organization and navigation. I highly recommend Steph. I will use her again, and again, and again.” Top Qualities:Great Results, Expert, High Integrity Kimberly Marooney: Founder of The Angel Ministry, hired Steph privately
I met Steph several years ago, not long after I lost my brother and then my job. At first our relationship was just business, but she not only brought me out of the darkness of my grief, she also gave me the confidence I needed to find a new job and move into the next chapter of my life.
At that time, I was lost and searching for something more but not knowing exactly what I was expecting to find. I spoke to several different spiritual advisors, but they were all just a salve to my open wounds, luckily I listened to my inner voice and was eventually led to Steph. After our first meeting , I knew she was genuine and trustworthy and truly understood what I was feeling. There is something about her that emotes honesty and trust, she has a gift for sensing your feelings and getting you to the point of identifying what is going on inside. She has a wealth of information on so many topics and if she doesn’t know is always willing to go the extra mile to find out. She is also one of the most creative and forward thinking individuals I have ever met and is open to anything you might throw at her. She put me at ease from the moment I met her and I feel lucky that she is in my life for whatever I may need either spiritual or business related.
I don’t see her as often as I would like, but I know if I ever need a sounding board she is there to listen and guide. I also know that she will never tell me how I should do something or try to force her opinions on me, on the contrary, she listens intently and then will gently nudge me to see what has been in front of me the whole time allowing me to choose what I want to believe or not, and never judging regardless of the choices I make. She wants you to find the answers within yourself which then gives you the confidence and independence to succeed in where ever your path is leading you. She is one of the most positive and creative thinkers in her line of business. Steph is an insightful guide, a gifted spiritual adviser, a trusted friend and so much more, I highly recommend her for all your needs.
I did not expect our first meeting to end in a lasting friendship, but that is what Steph is best at, finding lost souls and befriending them. Kelly Evans, Project Manager

Stephey Baker is a witty transcendentalist artist and writer. Her “Happy Place” is in the - Muse’s embrace. As Stephey’s childhood pals discarded the Muse, she skipped into her lair by enrolling in art school at age 14, curious to explore imagination and ignorant to its depth.
Unbeknownst to her, this unified a partnership w/her Muse and secured a seat on the roller coaster of living an inspired life.
Stephey’s Muse tutored her to employ art and the creative process not only to craft conceptual works of art, graphic design, and photography, but to navigate the highs and lows of life. This use of art and creativity as life process led her to pursue a degree in spiritual counseling through Gateway University.
Stephey teaches the art of creative living.
She offers inspirational, one-on-one and group support to create the life one desires.
I'd love to hear how you're actualizing your inspirations.
