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 Carter’s compositions, uplifted by the virtuosity of his hand and his understanding of universals of the human condition.

Carter earned his Master of Fine Arts Degree at the prestigious Pratt Institute of Fine Arts in New York. His paintings, drawings and illustrations are consistently in demand by collectors throughout the United States. As an artist/illustrator, his work is in the permanent collections of museums and private collectors throughout the United States, including the Denver Art Museum (Colorado), the African American Museum of Nassau County (New York) and the APEX Museum (Georgia). His work has also been published in numerous art books and other related publications, and he has been a contract illustrator for major New York publishers.

Robert is a distinguished adjunct professor of art at Nassau Community College, The State University of New York, where he teaches figure drawing. He is a sought-after lecturer and demonstrator in numerous public schools, universities and private art organizations.
