University of the South, Sewanee, TN - BA 2007
University of Kentucky - MFA expected 2012
Hello! My name is Natalie Baxter, I am an MFA student in the Fine Arts department studying video art. I was born and raised right here in Lexington, went away for college to the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee where I received a BA in Studio Art focusing on video art. I fell in love with documentary filmmaking while working on a film in Trenchtown, Jamaica and have continued to venture down that path. After graduation, I headed west to Montana, where I worked a number of art related jobs from teaching 3 year olds how to paint to working with the Bozeman Film Festival. I also became enthralled in the Native American Pow Wow culture and continued filming. I returned to the Bluegrass State to attend the University of Kentucky for graduate school where I am continuing to create documentary work, this time in eastern, Kentucky. I work in the College of Arts and Sciences with a group of wonderfully talented folks in Online Education's Media Mafia team.
