About Pam Carter

Pam Carter DA PAI was born in Tanzania, East Africa. Her Scottish father and Austrian mother came to Glasgow when she was aged thirteen. Pam gained a degree at Glasgow School of Art and had lectured for many years in Schools and Colleges including lecturing at Falkirk College. She exhibited throughout this time. In 2003 she became a full time painter.

"My main inspiration is in  Scottish land and seascape. I enjoy using colour to define contours, structure and changing light sequences. I search out specific view points. I am equally inspired by the changing light sequences of the Western Isles and the dramatic view points of the Eastern coastline. I work predominantly in oil."
