Carey was born in Scotland, and is both an artist and a musician. He studied Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art for 4 years until 1981, and then decided to re-settle in Cornwall the following year.  His love of landscape painting, first discovered in Scotland, has continued, fitting in well with the plein air tradition of Cornish painters. A good look at his excellent website reveals a wide range of coastal and in-land subjects, and the expansion of his pallette to the warmer climes of France and Spain where he also exhibits his work.

His home studio is in Falmouth, which allows him to paint viewing the sea.
