Occupation Textile Artist
Location St. Ives, Cornwall, United Kingdom
Introduction I'm a textile artist. I live in St. Ives, Cornwall in a lovely old cottage not far from the sea

I am inspired by nature - seed heads, berries, hedgerows, woodlands, coast paths, seascapes, seaweed, pebbles, shells, sea glass and blackbirds

My style is "country" - cream, white and natural colours with touches of RED and I love small collections of things, beautiful fine art, ceramics and hand crafted goodies

I also have another blog where I post about mixed media textiles and stitched art: CAROLYN SAXBY MIXED MEDIA TEXTILE ART
