Barbara Carter studied art and photography as an undergraduate. She then earned a master's degree in Occupational Therapy, a Ph.D. in Depth Psychology and spent 8 years as a university professor before returning to the visual arts.
Carter's signature style developed out of an exploration of alternative photographic processes and digital image manipulation. Her New Mexican, European and Chinese landscapes have been exhibited at top art shows around the country.
Barbara Carter lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband, photographer John Charbonneau, and their son.
