Jacki Baxter started printmaking after ten years working as a food stylist in the advertising industry, preparing, cooking and presenting food for photography in films and editorials. The composition, colours, shapes and textures, and the crockery, utensils and props used in her photography have resurfaced as a strong influence in her work. Jacki's work aims to 'convey the beauty of everyday objects by placing them in abstract spaces, using colour and texture to enhance their forms and enrich the compositions'.
Jacki studied in fine art at Middlesex University and went on to study printmaking at Camberwell College of Art. Jacki exhibits regularly at Bankside Gallery in London and has work in private and public collections including the V&A, Scarborough Museums Trust and Printmakers Council Archive.
See Jacki's work in Greenwich Printmakers at 40 at Watts Contemporary Gallery until 1 September.
