In 1989, Veevers-Carter received a degree in History from York University and emigrated from England to New York City to pursue a career in sculpting. While living and working in New York, Veevers-Carter immersed himself in the arts and studied sculpture, painting and drawing.
Veevers-Carter began his sculpting career carving stone. He transitioned to modeling with wax where he found greater artistic freedom defining his own boundaries of form rather than having them imposed upon him by the size and shape of a stone.
