Pam Carter was born in Tanganyika, East Africa in 1952 to an Austrain mother and Scottish father. From the mid 1980’s she taught in various colleges, including Falkirk College when she was instrumental in developing the HND Public Art and helped write BA Design.
In 2004 Pam decided to give up lecturing to concentrate on painting full time. Today Pam Carter has an international reputation for her strong, expressive paintings of the Scottish landscapes. Her highly sought after oil paintings have been exhibited at many group art shows including the Royal Scottish Society, the Royal Glasgow Institute, Visual Arts Scotland, and the Paisley Art Institute. She is the recipient of many art awards including the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Award at the Royal Glasgow Institute and a First Prize at the Paisley Institute. Pam’s paintings have also been selected for the Laing Calendar.
Pam Carter spends the summer in Skye and the Outer Isles from where she draws the inspiration for many of her colourful, atmospheric oils, which capture the remoteness and peacefulness of that unspoilt region of Scotland. This rugged West Scottish Coast provides the ideal subject matter with its isolated cottages and wild colours of the machair and brachen. Pam is also drawn to the East Scottish Coastal area with its majestic cliffs, fishing villages and farm land.
