Sarah Cross Artist
I am an artist based in Marlborough, Wiltshire, UK specialising in multi media pieces, predominantly using textile techniques.
When creating my work, inspiration comes from nature and it's many forms. I am particularly fascinated by the forest and the sea in equal measure. The textures, colours and movement are captivating and provide infinite possibilities for creativity.
I have a degree in Fashion Textiles from Plymouth University and have produced work for clients such as The Royal Henley Regatta, Tommy Hilfiger Amsterdam, Fullers Breweries and a range of private clients worldwide.
Professionally, I have been a television presenter of children's art programmes for Carlton Television and have taught Art based Textiles and Fine Art in a variety of schools for 26 years.
I have collaborated with international haute couturier Debbie Wingham on a wide range of projects in fashion and art and recently featured on the BBC1 Art show Home is where the Art is, where I won the commission.
My most recent collaboration has been with Fox Brothers & Co Ltd. I have created bespoke textile pieces for the 'Home' website and range of designs for soft furnishings to be sold by The Merchant Fox.
I have my first solo exhibition 4th - 7th November at Overton Framing Studio, Unit 2 Elmtree Industrial Park, Marlborough, Wiltshire. SN8 1PS
The exhibition will focus on my series of Face Off drawings, exploring the relationship between predator and prey in the animal kingdom.
Prints are available to buy online now from the
'Face Off' page.
