Cart and Fabric Art
I combine card and textiles to create my pictures. The card is firstly hand-cut, then I chose a variety of fabrics to add colour and texture. I am originally from France and a lot of my inspiration is drawn from continental-style buildings and villages, as well as illustrating plants and gardens.
I love the clean sharp effect of the dark cut card, which is softened by adding fine or textured fabrics. I am fast getting through the hundreds of fabric remnants stacked up on my shelves which I collected over the years, but I now have an excuse to buy even more!
From a distance, it’s not immediately obvious how the pictures are constructed. As you get closer, you will start to notice the 3D effect made from the card and fabric combined, with the intricate cuts and details in the fabric texture.
