Anne Carpenter has worked with fabrics for very many years, starting with small 'Fashion' collages which she sold through Liberty and Heals in London. Her technique has developed to encompass architectural themes, animals and still-life subjects, with figurative and abstract interpretation. Anne has sold extensively to the US and in Europe and has exhibited widely, including the European Buildings in Brussels, Strasbourg twice and in Paris. Her results are achieved by ' Painting with Fabric’. The pictures are strongly three-dimensional in appearance by judicious use of net and tulle. Although the general impression is of precise realism, the very medium of fabric ensures that, on closer inspection, the finish is in fact quite abstract. In the work there is no drawing or stitchery, it is not embroidery. All materials are hand-cut using scissors and pinking-shears and fixed by PVA adhesive.
