Baxter’s ‘Dancer in Repose’ is a delicate portrayal and celebration of the female form. The physicality that the artist applies to her clay is evident through the exquisite nuances added to the figure’s physical expression. The weathered patination of this piece adds to the aesthetic, which would settle superbly into a natural setting.

Holding early memories dear of digging clay out of a garden with her grandfather and modelling a dog, Baxter has evolved into a highly successful sculptor. Closely considering the ‘balance, gravity, volume and grace’ of a piece, she hopes that the viewer will also experience these thought processes upon close observation.


Trained at Camberwell School of Art in bronze foundry casting and arc welding techniques, Baxter went on to work for 12 years in the toy and giftware industry until she was able to procure a studio in Gloucestershire and undertake sculpture on her own terms. She lives and works in Monmouthshire.
