Author Biography

Linda Villwock Baker (L.S.V. Baker) Bio March 2017 With 30 years as a marketing communications professional, Linda Villwock Baker has used her public relations, media and strategic planning skills to advance an array of civic, corporate and nonprofit projects. Most recently, Ms. Baker co-founded Baxter's Corner, a producer and publisher of children's entertainment and educational materials designed to develop social and interpersonal skills in young children and to inspire positive behavior choices. The company's long term goals include creating a sustainable foundation and legacy that change the world for the better, one story at a time. Ms. Baker is "Chief Pencil" or author of all of the Baxter's Corner stories to date. Mary Ellen Brown Stottmann, 2017 Born in New Mexico, raised in New Jersey & Louisville Kentucky Mary Ellen Stottmann's art education began earlier than most. By the age of ten she was oil painting with a style that is still apparent today. After studying art in Paris, France she lived in New York City majoring in graphic design and graduated from the internationally recognized Parson School of Design, currently The New School. Her professional career began in 1966 working for an advertising studio. 1968 was a co-founder of a "Printing While You Wait" company which eventually led to her owning a digital offset printing company to retirement in 2005. Her career in printing allowed her to continue designing material for her clients; some are still being used today. One of the many opportunities offset print gave her was an amazing understanding of color and how it reacts by overlapping intensity. At retirement Mary Ellen began oil painting again taking a very graphic approach. Building the objects (and people) she usually paints over an intense color background allowing this color to form highlights or lines depending on the complexity of her pieces.
