Nikki Baxendale


Nikki Baxendale was born in London where she studied at the University for the creative arts and later in New York at the International Centre for Photography

Her career in design spans 3 decades with top branding, retail, and design companies where she held Chief Design, Art Director and Marketing positions leading international teams and presenting to global executives.

After gaining a deep knowledge of the design world, Nikki now focuses her time on her personal passion in art and photography. Her subject of the aquatic landscape is one that both fears and fascinates her. Memories as a child being snatched by currents and dragged into the ocean keep her feet firmly planted on the shore.

Light is her favourite tool. Her love of light stems from time with her father, a chemistry professor. Growing up behind an electron microscope studying patterns, crystals, and the refraction of light along with countless hours processing imagery in the dark room that they had captured with his old brownie camera.

Her lens is a way to capture a moment in time, but her brush allows for reinvention, and this is her true Love.

Published Internationally and currently featuring in British Vogue, Condé Nast Traveller, Tatler and House & Garden UK.
