I was born at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico in 1971. My father was a career Air Force pilot and a huge influence on my passion for aviation. My earliest attempts to enter the world of aviation art were drawing airplane doodles as a 3-year old on the inside covers of my dad’s Janes volumes in crayon.
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from The University of Arizona and was commissioned into the Air Force in 1996 and earned wings as an Electronic Warfare Officer (EWO) serving as an AC-130U EWO and EC-130H Mission Crew Commander. I flew in Operations DELIBERATE FORGE, ALLIED FORCE, ENDURING FREEDOM, and IRAQI FREEDOM I and II.
Following active duty, I worked as a contract illustrator for the USAF Weapons School Weapons Review magazine for 5 years. In 2015, I established my own business, The Art Of Justin Carroll, LLC. Artists who I’ve long admired include R.G. Smith, William S. Phillips, and James Dietz among others.
My wife Danielle and I have two children, Mackenzie and Brayden. We reside in Tucson, Arizona and often enjoy Mission Beach in San Diego and skiing the slopes of Arizona and Colorado during the winter.
