Carolyn Saxby is a mixed media textile artist from Cornwall, England.
Her work is quite amazing, blending different textiles together to create pieces infused with passion and emotion.
Crochet, knitting, beading, paper arts, machine stitching, hand embroidery, wet felting – Carolyn takes all these elements and produces textile alchemy. The detail in her work is sublime, her mastery of her art is evident in the things she produces. Studying her works in detail reveal the technical superiority that lies beneath.
You find out more about her work on her blog, and you can shower her with complements over on her Flickr photostream. Carolyn does not make a big fuss about her work, but she doesn’t need to; it speaks for itself.
The Cutting (& Stitching) Edge is brought to you in association with PUSH: Stitchery, the contemporary embroidered art book curated by Jamie Chalmers. Featuring 30 textile-based artists from around the world, it’s a must have for needlework fans.
