Studio Anita Carnell

Designer Maker - Mixed Media

Twickenham, Greater London


Interiors, hand stitched, leather & gold


£180 — £4500


Anita Carnell is based in London.  Her collection of hand-stitched leather wall art engages British historical material, particularly golden wire used by Royalty, Livery Companies for centuries.

She presents in contemporary form leather keeping its natural organic shape.  Gold not for its monetary value but for the light and shadows it creates.  She threads this inspiration with expertise of hand-stitching in gold thread, exploring the visible and invisible, and the passing of time.
