Self Portrait Drawing

James Carter Art

I'm an award-winning UK artist
I love and specialise in realism, but I enjoy experimenting with all mediums and techniques.

"Never Stop Progressing"



Having a strong passion for art has allowed me to experiment with all different styles and media, having this opportunity allowed me to realise that I love painting in oils, and drawing with coloured pencils. 

I believe in practice makes progress, because come on, no one is perfect; which means I intend to practice to progress my skill and knowledge of artwork, and never stop learning about art, and how I can push myself to be a better artist.

I am practically self-taught when it comes to realism art.  When I joined my college course I realised they do not really focus much on realistic works, as realism is not the style for everyone; but thanks to my awesome teachers, they have allowed me to develop my skill in my chosen field of art, and allow me to develop outside of my comfort zone as well, and they help me when they can to give constructive criticism to help me improve and develop beyond what I even thought I was capable of.  

I'm not held back by what I am good at,  I love expanding my knowledge of art in all forms, I found that coloured pencils and oils are my all-time favourites, I plan to never stop progressing in art, and I always want to be developing and improving.

Carter Art

I spend any ounce of free time I have away from college projects working on my own personal endeavours, notably the launch of “Carter Art” an online platform I launched for art students to visit, where they have free access to all articles (verified writers can contribute articles to the site), and can connect with artists alike, they also use it as a platform to share their art and store their own portfolios and a forum for critique and evaluation in a positive environment.
