Studio Anita Carnell

Designer Maker - Mixed Media

Kings Lynn, Norfolk


Interiors, hand stitched, leather & gold


£180 — £4500


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

Each work is an exercise in restraint.  At once abstract they allow space of the viewer’s contemplative imagination to take roots.
