CAROLYN SAXBY MIXED MEDIA TEXTILE ART: Textiles, rusty boats and peeling paint

Textiles, rusty boats and peeling paint

textile artist photography and mixed media - Carolyn Saxby Textile Art St Ives Cornwall

beads by Carolyn Saxby~~I am a textile artist living in St. Ives, Cornwall. I love to work in mixed media with paint and stitch. I love to manipulate fabrics and plastics with heat to alter their appearance and create interesting textures. I use these pieces along with found objects from the beach and nature (shells, sea glass, pottery pieces, seaweed, feathers, leaves, seed heads and pressed flowers) which I mix with vintage photos and fabrics to create one of a kind pieces of textile art

December

December was a very busy month we had stressful conveyancing and legal things going on lots of paperwork and contracts to push around lots of typing and "swearing" of documents it took up a lot of my time whenever I did have spare time I made snowflakes for friends and one or two for our own tree I decorated our tree quite late this year ... around the 10th December which is pretty late for me ... but it looked lovely when it was finished on 13 December my friend Rosie came over for the day…

I hope you may like my mixed media textile art beads Each bead is hand made by me from painted Tyvek which I manipulate with heat to achieve the interesting shapes and textures. The colours are built up in many layers over as many as four or five stages to achieve the look I am after. The colours have a sheen to them that reflect the light and each and every bead is one of a kind. No two packets of beads are quite the same. You will receive these actual beads seen here in these…

BEAUTIFUL art here! And her visual explanations and showing how she puts it together is so valuable and interesting!
