Carpenter is drawn to people and their stories, which often form a starting point for work that extends fact with fiction. Carpenter’s current work takes an old family postcard as its starting point and follows a relative’s journey to Durdle Door. The tone of the work is uplifting, infused with Carpenter’s love of travel, and suggesting feelings of freedom and memories of holidays. Through the work, Carpenter wants to take her viewers on a journey, to offer them an escape too.
