Saskia Ellis Holden


Saskia Ellis Holden studied at Chelsea College of Art. She says….

“Edge – my preoccupation – The paradox that edge exists only in relation to that by which it is itself defined: the in-between, the space where things happen.

A lifetime spent observing life through colour and sensation – my inspiration.

Indian saris laid out to dry in long strips on the land; water and sand meeting on an Egyptian beach, Hampstead ponds on a winter’s day, life seen from my studio window.

Hours collecting fabric fuelled by a passion for layer, pattern and form. I work with hand-mixed water based materials from my studio in Bethnal Green.”
