Her work has been exhibited at international art fairs such as AAF NYC, Moniker Art Fair and 20/21. Following the success of her workshop and skull art installation at Tate Modern, Baker was invited by Tate Britain to host a large-scale interactive installation, in which she turned part of Tate Britain into a forest. Baker's most intricate work, which sold for £420,000 to an influential sheikh in Qatar, is a Steinway grand piano encrusted with half a million crystals. Another notable work is The Crystal Tigress; a sculpted life-size tiger head encrusted with 52,000 crystals, toured Asia, was endorsed by Jimmy Choo and Jaime Winstone which fetched £30,000 at the tiger conservation charity auction.
