Marty Epp-Carter (they/them, she/her) was raised in the Midwest, lived in Boston and Provincetown for over twenty years, and has been living in South Carolina since 2006. They earned a BA in Mass Communication from Boston University, a BFA in painting from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design an MS in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University and an MFA in Printmaking from Clemson University. Epp-Carter is also a teacher and credits their continuously changing artwork to ongoing experimentation and collaboration in the classroom. 

A multi-disciplinary artist, Epp-Carter travels comfortably between traditional intaglio etching, woodcut and linocut relief prints, collage constructions, bookmaking, photography, sound art and found object sculpture. While the work may differ in media, the underlying theme remains the same: a desire to point the viewer toward irony and absurdity in contemporary culture while staying true to aesthetically formal considerations rooted in the decorative arts, expressionism and modernism. Recently, Epp-Carter began incorporating a sense of threshold, transition, returning and discovering, place and non-place into their art. 

Epp-Carter shows their work at the Schoolhouse Gallery in Provincetown, Massachusetts and Joel Wilkinson ART in Greenville, South Carolina.  Their work is in many national and international, private and public collections.
