Born in 1970, Joe Carton is a New Hampshire-based painter and printmaker. His work has been exhibited widely throughout greater New England. Joe received his BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design in 1992. He currently lives and works in New Hampshire.

His work incorporates imagery related to luck, enlightenment, man’s ruin, the fool’s journey, and other contemporary themes.
