  • Carter Noseworthy, Nova Scotia.

  • Carter Noseworthy was born in St. John’s, Newfoundland (NF) in 2008. Both of his parents were born and raised in Conception Bay South, NL. They moved as a family to Halifax, Nova Scotia (NS) when Carter was just a year old. His father, an accomplished painter, was stationed in Halifax with the Royal Canadian Navy. His mother, a Speech-Language Pathologist, worked from home to raise Carter and turned her love of sea glass art into a small successful business.

    Being a competitive gymnast since the age of 8, Carter devotes 20 hours a week, year-round, to training.  He competes at the national level, representing Nova Scotia.  In his limited free time, Carter enjoys pursuing his creative and artistic interests such as clay modelling, origami, felting, photography, sketching, and painting.  Carter has always had an eye for detail, colour, texture, perspective, patterns, and design.

    During the worldwide lockdown in 2020/2021, Carter had extra free time to spend sketching. He decided to use this time to explore the use of watercolour with his architectural sketches.  It quickly became his favourite pastime.  Drawn to maritime historical buildings, Carter decided to sketch and paint several well-known NL and NS landmarks such as Cabot Tower, Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse, and the Citadel Clock Tower.

    His work was noticed locally by a reporter from CBC and an article was written and published online in May 2021 about his newfound talent and ability. The response was huge.  The following week, his work was featured on CBC The National which drew attention from art lovers worldwide. He has been receiving commissions ever since.

    In 2023, Carter became the youngest artist to ever be a part of Paint the Hydrostone in Halifax, NS.  Three of his paintings were shown and sold at 14 Bells Fine Art Gallery.   Being inspired by the artists who attended that event, he decided to experiment with oil painting, and it has quickly become his favourite medium.  His first official oil painting was selected by Argyle Fine Art, in 2024, to be a part of their 20th anniversary Pre-Shrunk Show and it sold on opening night.

    Carter hopes to become an architect or engineer in the future.
