Artwork by Vivian Mae Treadwell Baker, Age 82, NY Nursing Home Resident
Vivian Mae Treadwell Baker was born in Huntingon, NY in 1927. She’s proud to be part Shinnecock Indian. She was in foster care from the age of seven until she rejoined her family at 17 years old. Ms. Baker supported herself throughout her life with housekeeping and work in factories, the post office, and a bank. The artwork she created in the community was lost during her transition to the nursing home. These are watercolors she made while a nursing home resident.
