About Myra Carter
MYRA CARTER: ARTISTS PROFILE
Myra is a contemporary abstract artist with a passion for colour and texture. She enjoys experimenting with different techniques, materials, and colours. She feels excited by the unpredictability of abstraction and chooses to work by letting the artwork talk to her as she develops the parts of a painting she likes. A juxtaposition of colours, an interesting texture, some wide expressive strokes can begin the creative process.
Diversity is the cornerstone of her work. Myra’s creativity is sparked by the natural world and those influences can often be seen in her work. As a child, Myra came from Scotland to live in Melbourne with her family. Her previous career was as a psychologist. She feels this has enhanced her artistic career as she seeks to express emotion through her work on canvas. Myra’s recent challenges in overcoming cancer twice has also had an impact on her painting. Myra uses her art as a way to celebrate life using vibrant colours or to create a soothing experience with softer hues. Her works continue to be exhibited in a variety of Art Shows and elsewhere including two works hanging in the Office of the Solicitor-General of Victoria. At any one time Myra has a number of art works hanging in corporate environments through her relationship with an art leasing company. Myra’s artworks are listed on the National Register of Australian Art and Artists.

A NOTE FROM THE ARTIST
I love being an abstract artist! Nothing offers more excitement and freedom than being involved in creating something vibrant and beautiful. In addition you get to experience the happiness you bring to someone as they share their life with one of your artworks. Through my art I attempt to spread a feeling of joy and I delight in celebrating the beauty of colour. I am always inspired by nature and I often use botanical references in my work.
