Painter and Textile Artist
Saffron Craig is a painter and textile artist working with ink on linen fabric. Craig's work investigates the delicate patterns of life, from bubbles floating in the water, to salt drying on skin after an ocean swim to the imagined fantasy world of Mermaids including the beauty of the natural world around us.
Most often her works are born from an exploration of colour, observing the pigment as it becomes free on the surface, shifting and changing uncontrolledly to become something beautiful.
Threads are then carefully hand-embroidered through the painting to create texture, line and form to shape native flowers or coral reefs inhabiting the landscapes and seascapes, creating unique pieces.
