Robert-Carter was born in Louisville, Kentucky,
where at an early age he was receptive to line, color and form, having an intuitive feeling for design. His sensitivity to detail became the legacy and abiding thread that connects the continuum of his art and that especially distinguishes his art of today. The dignity of the human spirit reigns within the people of Robert Carter’s compositions, uplifted by the virtuosity of his hand and his privileged understanding of human nature.
Carter earned his Master of Fine Arts Degree at the prestigious Pratt Institute of Fine Arts in New York.
Carter lives in Dix Hills, New York, on Long Island, about an hour East of Manhattan.
