Perez Art District – Cathedral City CA
ARTICLE & PHOTOS BY LYNNE TUCKER
Andrée B. Carter was born and raised in New Orleans. She has lived in Seattle and Los Angeles, and now resides in Palm Desert.
Andrée’s love of color and texture is evident in the way she treats the surfaces of her work. Andrée’s process combines two key elements—many, many layers of paint plus her signature use of handmade needlepoint. By stitching onto the surface, cutting holes into the canvas, and/or using collage, she creates a history embedded into the paintings. Paper, fabric, thread, textiles, and other media, all combine to add depth to the physicality of her work.
Andrée is a member of TextileartsLA, Los Angeles Art Association, Southern California Womens Caucus for the Arts, and The Artist Council of Palm Desert.
Come see Andrés’s art work at her new studio located at:
68895 Perez Road
