About the Artist



Jerry Baer is an artist and author based in Berkeley, California.  Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, his art and writing combines elements of East and West Coast culture.  Jerry’s first book, Lake Drive, has received accolades from across the country.  An avid painter, he has created dozens of original works, many of which are featured in prominent households throughout the world.  In addition, many of his pieces have been sold to raise money for worthy causes, including Berkeley Battered Women’s Shelter and a St. Louis Jewish congregation.

Along with his wife, Mikki, Jerry travels the world, visiting his many friends and relatives.  Those travels, no less than those relationships, inspire his writing and painting, and give him a unique perspective that shines through his art.
