Wendy Carpenter, fiber artist, established Interfibers Studio Gallery in 1981.The gallery is located in Fish Creek, WI, and open May through October. Her ecommerce store is new for 2016.
Wendy's contemporary fine art of fiber wall sculptures and hangings reveal her personal expressionism style derived from borderline “abstract-literal” interpretations. Her main atristic specialty with fiber wall sculptures and hangings is commission work for large wall spaces and interiors that need visual and acustic softening.
Wendy's unique hand cut/polished jadeite & geode jewelry line, along with her hand weaved jaspe' clothing line, is part of a mission project she created eight years ago, entitled "Creating Revenue through the Arts."
Wendy works in Guatemala teaching specialized skills and giving a fair wage to improve the standard of living for the Mayan artisans. Her collaborative work provides them with enough earnings to make a difference in their life, family, and community!
