She describes her designs as “inspired by the rebellious energy of graffiti writers and ancient writing.” One of her works, titled “Bounce,” was recently selected as part of the New York City Department of Transportation’s Barrier Beautification Program.
Baldwin holds an M.F.A. in Painting from the Pratt Institute and was awarded the Hugh A. Wilson Award for Excellence in Abstraction during her time at Adelphi.
On November 9, 2016, Baldwin and 15 volunteers will install “Bounce” along a segment of Queens Boulevard, between Woodhaven Boulevard and 59th Avenue.
