As a long-time resident of the Carolinas, Todd Baxter never lacks interesting and inspiring subject matter to capture on canvas. It might be the play of light and shadow on a ramshackle tobacco barn that grabs his attention, or the proud farmhouses, vintage trucks and other remnants of a rural society unwilling to totally uproot from its past. He’s 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. For more than three decades, he created images that engaged audiences in the world of advertising. Along the way, he shared a home and rewarding life with his wife of 36 years, four daughters and six grandchildren. 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, and started painting in earnest.
“To me, many artists’ statements try too hard to be profound. I am not out to right the wrongs of society or solve the mysteries of the universe. I paint because I love to paint. | I enjoy the challenge of finding beauty in the ordinary and common things our busy lives cause us to overlook. | A big part of painting is learning to see and observe. | The only way to master painting is to paint, paint, paint, and then paint some more. | There are no short cuts to success.”
