Carole Sabiston RCA - Biography

Victoria-based textile artist Carole Sabiston began her professional career in England as a painter but found painting did not allow her to achieve the effect she was seeking in her work, namely light, movement, and texture.

In 1987 she was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy and also received the Saidye Bronfman Award, the highest honour in applied arts design in Canada.

Carole Sabiston's hangings and tapestries have been exhibited across Canada and in Europe in more than 35 shows including 18 solo shows.

Redkettle's textile framed original "North March" is titled, signed and dated Carole Sabiston 1968 on back frame. It was purchased at her first gallery showing in Victoria. Provenance comes with this work. Her art of this size and age is rare.
