Little Girl On Top Of The World

Traveling, planet hopping while nonchalant playing with a hoola hoop. 

I'm stitching away and thinking thoughts of all the things I want to do when I grow up.

Embroidery Over My Hand Painting

Posted on June 29, 2016 by Saffron Craig | 1 comment

Here is an example of some of my new work, which is stitching itself to become a new body of work for me.  I'm combining all the ideas I've been experimenting with over the past 12 months. Hand embroidering colourful stitches, over some of my hand painted linen, adding another dimensional layer.  I like the direction these works are going and my embroidery is getting more interesting. 

Winter is a good time to stitch as it's nice to be indoors, it really is bitterly cold in Sydney. I've been listening to loads of podcasts and Netflix.

New Artwork—

Posted on November 30, 2015 by Saffron Craig | 0 comments

After creating so many vector based images over the past few years I have really wanted to paint a painting like this one. Large multi coloured, allowing the paint to smear and layer. Letting the mark on the canvas be from my fingertips and brushes. Using and referring to the patterns and shapes that I love. 

I am pleased with this one the process is exhilarating. It makes me feel oh so happy.

My Morning Ritual

Posted on November 26, 2015 by Saffron Craig | 1 comment

Waking up is so easy in Summer. This morning I saw the dawn crack in at just after 5am. I was surprised that the night was over so soon. It was so warm padding around the house. I sat on my couch and woke up. It was pleasant to watch the shadows fade. I enjoyed this time to think. 

I boiled the kettle and made a pot of vanilla tea —brewing it for 5 minutes. I added milk into my Marremeko cup, a cup with a water colour illustration on it. I find this such a beautiful cup.  I sipped the tea,  savouring every mouthful. I made a bowl of muesli natural with natural yogurt and ate that on the couch. With the family gathered around doing much the same.

Showered and I then got dressed— light summer clothes and Birkenstocks. I made my bed neatly maybe like a bed in a magazine. I do love my bed to look nice. Tidied the kitchen, cleaned my teeth. Routine.

Then we walked down to the beach for a swim, down the hill through the trees full of yellow flowers. The water was all shades of blue. People said good morning. Asked me how I was. The wind was from the west and so hot. For 40 minutes we basked in the beauty of the morning. Then hot we walked home. My daughter continued on her walk to school in her uniform, school bag full on her back. Once inside my little one fell asleep gratefully into her cot. 

By 8.30 I was sitting in my studio mixing ink in shades of pink and peach. Summer fruit colours. Painting and creating. My bliss.

This seems to be my Spring/Summer morning ritual.
