Carter Stuart is based in Richmond, VA, and studied Graphic Design and Painting/Drawing at Anderson University. She has been coloring and drawing ever since she can remember, with subjects ranging from portraits to penguins.


Carter’s illustrations capture the delights and ironies of everyday life, and her endearing characters inhabit a whimsically recognizable world. Her joy is in making people smile through shared stories and memories, and finding adventure in the creative process.


When she is not at the drawing table, Stuart finds inspiration at the water’s edge, in a bookstore, or in a riveting conversation over tea.
