Baggott, based in both Hull, Massachusetts, and Ludlow, Vermont, has been an exhibiting artist since 2006, and began working with collage as her primary medium in 2021. Baggott was part of the Collage Artist Residency: Scotland in Sanquhar, Scotland, in September 2022. Her work from that residency was published by Kolaj Institute in Folklore of the Upper Nithsdale in 2023 and shown in Sanquhar and at the Knoxville Museum of Art in Tennessee.

In March 2023, she was the working gallery artist at Canal Street Art Gallery and returned for a second stint this month. In January 2024, Baggott was a resident artist in New Orleans through Kolaj Institute, where selected artists were invited to explore joy as a subject and consider how to bring joy into one's practice. She is currently focused on private commissions and continuing series.
