Carter Thompson was raised in the deserts of western Utah. Following a degree in Scenic Design and additional studies in fine arts, he moved to New York City to pursue art direction and design, bringing with him all the exuberance and optimism of the American West.
With 15 years of experience in design, his skills extend from carpentry to crochet and from welding to watercolor. As a Prop Stylist, his work has been featured in marketing campaigns and special events for leading companies worldwide, including HomeGoods, McDonalds McCafé, and The Empire State Building. His work has been seen in Architectural Digest, People, Elle Decor, Today, Rachael Ray, and Us Weekly. His theatrical scenic and prop designs have been seen off-Broadway and across the country.
His freewheeling sketches are a cocktail of dark sophistication and witty effervescence. An avid people-watcher, Carter’s artwork is infused with observational humor and the lively contradictions of the human condition. His artwork has been shown at DTR Modern Galleries in Palm Beach, and various locations in New York.
In his free-time, he enjoys exploring history with his popular TikTok series and Podcast, Carter's Condensed History.
