BIOGRAPHY

Baxter received a MFA from the University of Kentucky in 2012 and a BA in Fine Art from the University of the South in Sewanee, TN in 2007. Her work has been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally.  Press for Baxter’s work includes, The New York Times, Hyperallergic, The Guardian, Vogue Italia and Bomb Magazine.  She currently lives and works in New York, NY.
