The art of tapestry weaving is one which Caron Penney has development over a long career. This has involved the creation of artwork for artists such as Tracey Emin, Martin Creed, John Hubbard and Gillian Ayres. Penney contributed to the book ‘Tapestry - a woven narrative’ publish in 2011 and Authenticity and Replication: the ‘Real Thing’ in Art and Art Conservation, in 2014. As well as working on high-profile commissions for the West Dean Tapestry Studio and her own Weftfaced Tapestry Workshop, Penney is a prolific exhibition-led weaver in her own right. ‘A defining characteristic of her oeuvre as an artist is the use of visual semiotics in expressing autobiographical themes.’* Penney travelled repeatedly to Manhattan from 2001 - 2012.
