We welcome Shell Rummel as a fabric designer for Coats. Designer Shell Rummel has been a successful and established presence in the fine art, wedding and stationery markets for nearly 20 years.
Watercolors are the preferred medium for this award-winning artist, and the unpredictability of painting with water often results in surprising variations and subtle imperfections, which make Shell’s patterns so beautifully unique. There is an inherently organic, natural quality as well as a softly refined feel to Shell’s designs. Her livable collections are both comfortable and contemporary at the same time.
Shell’s work is a direct reflection of what catches her eye and she strives to honor the lines, layers, textures and colors of all that inspires her. Shell says of her quilting fabrics, ” It is a pleasure to see my designs gracing such soft and beautiful Quilting Fabrics. I love how the watercolor feel of my art comes through…skillful craftsmanship ensures that! All of my tranquil fabrics will translate beautifully to quilting, clothing and home decor projects. I love seeing all the charming and beautiful projects that customers make with my collections! “
Shell describes her designs this way:
My inspiration is the fluid grace of nature. I am drawn to organic lines, authentic materials, layers that reveal and patterns that make the eye dance. I enjoy storytelling with watercolors, photographs, music and poetry.
My company, Shell Artistree, has been a successful and established presence in the wedding, stationery and gift markets for many years. My award winning watercolor artwork has been represented in retail stores and fine art galleries nationwide, and has been featured in juried art shows, fine art exhibition and national publications. Bed Bath & Beyond is a key retailer where you can find some of my work.
My collections are sophisticated with a high design aesthetic; however my painterly hand and signature serene and soothing palettes make them accessible to a wide variety of markets. The Brand appeals to those who value fine art, inspired design, and a natural, organic quality in their surroundings.
