Amanda & Shayd – Baker City

I like making art, painting and drawing, and making slime.

Amanda: “Some of my best memories as a kid are traveling around the US. We got to see Arches National Park in Utah and went to Niagara Falls. My stepdad was in the Coast Guard so I got to see a bunch of stuff I wouldn’t otherwise see. One of my best experiences here in Baker was working on seven or eight murals when I was a sophomore in high school. I worked on the murals on the Campbell side of the Heritage Museum with Tom Novak (the artist). I like painting and drawing and so does Shayd. We are artsy people.”

Shayd: “I like making art, painting and drawing, and making slime. Well, my mom helps make the slime, but it is really fun to play with. Playing with my brothers and sisters is my favorite too. Some of them live in Washington.”

Amanda: “We settled here because it is nice and quiet. It is not perfect, but we are happy here and you know who’s who. The city was just too loud.”
