  About Todd Baxter

Todd Baxter has loved to draw the world around him as far back as he can remember, one of those enviable people who always knew what they wanted to be when they grew up.  His artist’s eye first guided Todd’s successful career as a graphic designer, begun after he graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh in 1975.  For more than three decades, he created images that engaged audiences in the world of advertising. Then in June 2010, with the responsibilities of raising a family in the rearview mirror, he decided to adjust course to focus on his passion for fine art.

“I am extremely grateful to be able to pursue my passion, to have the opportunity to do what I love doing, every day.”

Todd is currently represented by the Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, and Olive’s in Fort Mill, SC. He is a member of the Tega Cay Art League, the Charlotte Art League, the Catawba River Art Guild and the Charlotte Plein Air Painters.
