Artist Statement

Having grown up in a small country town, my art was the one thing that kept me focused and grounded. Everything else was just a side step that ultimately lead me to the place where I am now. Art allows me to express whatever is on my mind and in my heart. Early on, I choose to explore graphic design, and this lead me to computer art. Still, I enjoy drawing and painting more naturally with my hand.

I am a rather quiet person, and I like to let my artwork speak for me. However, I am interested in the way people act and see the world, and thoroughly enjoy conversation with just about anyone. My philosophy is to enjoy each day and live it fully.


Carlson grew up in Branchville SC in the county Orangeburg. Following his passion for creativity and art, he attended Spartanburg Community College where he obtained an associate degree in graphic design.
