LOVE LIVES HERE... paintings, prints and fabric by P. Carter Carpin
My new line of fabric LOVE LIVES HERE, is now in my ETSY shop!

I used to be a product and textile designer but am now doing what I love.... making art. Happy Art! Corny? Don't care!
Happy art is naturally what comes out of me. I love color, I love painting, pattern and patchwork. I love combining my more sophisticated art with art for kids, I love my husband and son... I love life. I am a very lucky gal who is living her dream life in many many ways. How did this happen? Lots of hard work, big dreams, faith, HOPE,love, and never giving up despite the challenges. For me, losing hope is losing it all. Just don't do it please! You just never know what will be coming round the bend.

Lots of great things are brewing for me and my family. 2012 was a fantastic year for us and 2013 is starting off the same way. Check back for new listings and exciting news coming soon. Unfortunately, I will have to limit my time on the road this year and will be cutting my shows in half. I will miss the adventures of meeting you all but really feel it is time to stay home with my family a little more and redirect some of my marketing efforts.
I plan on launching a web site in addition to my ETSY site by January 2014.

Most of my listings are reproduction digital prints on paper and giclees on canvas but occasionally I have an original for sale. They go fast so keep a lookout if you are interested in an original.

Some of my pieces are painting with collage where I incorporate original patterns from my days as a textile designer. Look closely and you will see elements of photo silkscreen, hand stitching, applique, hand dyeing, etc.. I hope my work will make you as happy and hopeful as it makes me.

If you have seen me at a show and do not see what you are looking for just let me know. I may not have all of my designs listed.
If you are any where near Richmond Virginia you can also see my work at the Shops at 5807 (5807 Patterson Ave) but please be aware the selection is minimal. Email or call me and I will make sure the piece you want is at the shop. If you would like to come by my studio that is possible by appointment only.
My work is being licensed by many fine companies and I will be listing those products in the coming months.

If you are interested in setting up a wholesale account please convo me for more information.
Thank you so much for visiting P. Carter Carpin's Serious Whimsey...I truly appreciate it.
I hope you will find something here to make you smile!xx
