Todd Baxter & Susan Owens


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 four 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.” ...more


Susan Owens

I create paintings using a mixture of cold wax and oil, applied with palette knives. Painting with these mediums has become my passion.

I also create one-of-a-kind, silk scarves, hand painted using French imported dyes. The scarves are steamed to set the dyes. Each scarf is a unique piece of art.

Susan's art is sold by the artist at shows & festivals and at various galleries in eastern North Carolina...more
