Born in Carlisle, Cumbria, Wood notes that Carrick was a member of the Hogarth Club, where there was particular sympathy for Pre-Raphaelite ideas. Bednar viewed a framed picture of Newlyn harbour by the artist, which was stated to have been signed, inscribed and dated 1883 on the reverse when it was sold unframed at auction (Victorian Pictures, Phillips, New Bond Street, London, 3 June 1997, Lot 116). He travelled to France, Switzerland and Spain, and produced small, detailed studies and coastal scenes. He died in London, age 63, on 22 September, 1896 (GRO).
