About Anne Fontenoy

Anne Fontenoy

I draw and make things - cards, botanical art, silk scarves, hand made accesories and dresses. Silk specialist.

I was encouraged to draw and sew at home when I was a small child as I am lucky to come from a family with creative professionals stretching back through the generations: engineers, innovators, wood carvers, cabinet makers, embroideresses, dressmakers, photographers, dancers and more, so it was just normal to be creative.

I studied needlework, embroidery, art and technical drawing at school and then trained in art and fashion studios in London where everything was drawn and made by hand.

When I was a young teenager I started to make patterns for clothes because I could not find patterns for clothes that I wanted to wear and I constantly made pencil sketches of clothes in my spare time as well as other pictures.

People liked my clothes and asked me to design and make clothes for them and draw pictures as well, and so my practice began, expanding from handsewn clothes into cards, hand painted scarves, ladies accessories as well as art pictures.

The stencil cards were originally individually airbrushed. The inks are now obsolete so I scanned the designs and print them myself using archival inks and digital fine art paper. The giclée prints are printed for me by a Fine Art Trade Guild print company from my own scans.

I design, make the patterns and hand sew all the clothes and accessories and all the drawings are mine.

The apparel I make is really handmade because to sew I use just a hand sewing needle and thread, no sewing machine at all. I prefer to work with natural fibres: silk, wool, cotton, linen although I do sometimes use some synthetic, artificial and mixed fibres.

I started the airbrushed hand cut stencil card designs in the 80s when the Letrajet first came out and I was able to make a completely handmade card - each card was individually airbrushed from my hand cut stencils - that was cost effective to make.

The inks I used to airbrush these stencil designs are now obsolete. So I scanned the stencil designs and print the cards myself with Epson Claria inks (archival quality) onto Bockingford 190 gsm digital fine art paper using my own inkjet printer. Bockingford is an English fine art watercolour paper and for the cards I use the variety of this paper which has the surface prepared for digital print.

Currently I work from a home base. It keeps overheads down but it also allows me to flex my working hours around my schedule, so I can also visit suppliers and shows and do all the other things, apart from designing and making that are part of a sole trader's life.
