MEET SAFFRON CRAIG
Saffron creates and works out of her Sydney studio, painting, embroidering, and layering various techniques over linen where her natural surroundings inspire her paintings. She grew up in a small coastal town in NSW, graduated with First Class Honours from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and now lives by the shoreline on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Saffron’s works are abstracted by layering colour, creating texture and introducing subtle shapes. Saffron’s works are influenced by landscapes with her most recent pieces inspired by the beautiful Margaret River in remote Western Australia, a place where the famous desert wild flowers grow.
