carts's Profile Picture
Robert Carter
Artist | Professional
Robert Carter is a multiple award-winning full time professional freelance illustrator. Born in St. Albans, England, he moved to Ontario, Canada, at an early age. Robert began his journey into the world of art from the get-go, constantly doodling and sketching anything and everything. He went on to study Art and Illustration, graduating from the prestigious Sheridan College School of Art and Animation.

Working as a professional illustrator for more than a decade, Robert's style combines a strong foundation in portraiture with a unique sense of visual and conceptual problem-solving. He creates striking, vibrant, and textured illustrations and portraits ranging from realistic to surreal.

With a background in traditional oil painting Robert applied those skills to the digital realm, teaching himself the digital painting medium. Which is now his preferred method of working, for it’s speed and flexibility.

Taking a short hiatus from illustration in 2013, Robert went back to Sheridan College to study Computer Animation, graduating with honours.

Robert would like to continue to explore and expand his work, continually striving to improve himself and his art. He now lives and works as a professional freelance illustrator in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.

I fell in love with your work, some pieces nearly made me cry. I have no words for the effect your art has on me, it's triggering my imagination and makes me wanna write or draw or do both. Don't know. There is something, that... Yeah. It goes through my skin and right into my mind, my heart, every fucking part of me. I'm usually not writing comments, because I'm afraid to say stupid shit, but this time I really have to tell you, how much I love what you're sharing with us.
