David Carty graduated from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax NS with a degree in Fine Arts with a minor in Art Education. While attending MSCAD he focused on Art Education, Graphic Design and Illustration. He studies under Nicolas J. Sokcevic, the chief illustrator for NASA during the Apollo program. Over the years David has worked as an illustrator and graphic designer and worked on the early CG systems, including the Dicomend – D38 Design Station, the General Electric Genigraphics CG system and, as well, Mac Computers.
He has taught many children’s and adult art classes in and out of school settings.
In recent years David has painted many large outdoor across Canada. Many of these murals have cultural and historic significance requiring in-depth research for accuracy. He has found the research to be as challenging as the art process itself. David also has contributed as a scenic artist for the television and film industries.
