North Shore Studio


Born in 1995, Aria Carter has a singular vision for fashion and passion! Her artwork is rife with haute couture references interspersed with youthful, pop culture iconography. Her compositions construct narratives around this unexpected juxtaposition of high and low-brow cultural fixtures.

“It’s about fashion designers. It’s about Rated R. It’s about scary. It’s about dark fantasies and romance.”

Carter works with focus and certainty and is confident about her interests and artistic intentions. She skillfully balances compositions, exercising restraint to preserve and craft thoughtful negative space in her works. An undeniable playfulness manifests in vivid colors and functionally counterbalances the seductiveness of her imagery.

“My visual art is put things together. I use putting the C on the nipples, lips, necklace, flowers and lots of pearl. I put a red thong.
