Pam Carter was born in Tanganyika, East Africa in 1952 to an Austrian mother and a Scottish father. She graduated from Glasgow School of Art and began teaching in the 70’s.

Pam Carter has exhibited at numerous solo exhibitions over the years throughout the UK and in the USA. Her paintings have featured in many group art shows including the Royal Scottish Academy and the RGI. She won the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons Award at the Royal Glasgow Institute in 1996 and 2 years later was awarded First Prize at the Paisley Institute. Pam’s work has been selected for the Laing Calendar.

Pam Carter is now recognised for her landscape work, particularly of coastal views and farmland and she is sought after for her style when painting both East and West coast views with their isolated cottages, cliff outlines and vivid colours on land, sea and sky.

Pam’s style shows that she does not attempt to capture scenes with complete accuracy, preferring to represent the subject often in an abstract way, particularly when it comes to capturing light. The end result is always accomplished in terms of contrast, colour and balance – her work is readily recognisable and to her many followers she has become extremely collectable. Her colour palate has changed in recent times with the current warm blue shades of skies and seas being a dominant and instantly recognisable feature.

The Gullane Art Gallery owners have been admirers of Pam’s work for many years and have a number of her paintings in their private collection. We are delighted that Pam has been a contributor to the 2009 Gullane Masters exhibition and we hope she will become a regular artist within the gallery.
