A major watercolorist in the Cleveland, Ohio area in the early 20th century, he was born in Portsmouth, Ohio and received recognition for his art talent as a child.

In 1924, he enrolled in the Cleveland School of Art and earned key patronage from William Millikin, local arts supporter who arranged for Carter to study in Europe in 1927. From 1929 to 1937, he taught at the Cleveland Museum of Art, a job arranged by Millikin. He studied at Hans Hoffman Summer School in Capri and exhibited in Carnegie International, and other international watercolor exhibitions.
