Shell Rummel - Fine Artist / Designer
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. My artistic creation involves engaging all the senses, capturing the soul and heartbeat of emotions and bringing them to life. I enjoy storytelling with watercolors, photographs, music and poetry. I love what I do and am thrilled to be able to share my passion and vision.
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. I am honored that my artwork has been collected by thousands of private and corporate art patrons both within the US and abroad. I consider myself to be a creative visionary with an authentic entrepreneurial spirit...a true blend of art and business acumen, and Shell Artistree has provided the perfect venue for channeling my artistry towards commercial success.
My art licensing brand, Shell Rummel licensing, offers my original hand painted watercolor designs for fine art licensing. I enjoy the challenge of collaborating closely with manufacturers and retailers to design beautiful products that will be successful in the marketplace. The Shell Rummel brand is synonymous with exceptional quality artwork, professional integrity, and meticulous innovative design. I am committed to designing distinctive collections with a high design aesthetic that are suitable for limited and open edition prints, apparel, decorative accessories, floor covering, giftware, greeting cards, stationery, tabletop, textiles, wall decor and wall covering.
My studio is my haven, where I am calm and focused and receptive to the sweetest artistic inspiration. My studio is where I breathe free and am at my best - where I fulfill my vision and dream. Whether I am painting for my own pleasure, or designing for my growing list of art licensing clients, my focus remains steady; to create exceptional, sophisticated artwork that is infused with beauty and grace.
My artistic life is enhanced by my social media connections and I consider myself fortunate to have built a loyal circle of friends comprised of accomplished artists, poets, writers, photographers and musicians. This talented, international group of dynamic souls has been instrumental in challenging me as an artist and supporting me as my art evolves. Social media is one of my many muses and I encourage you to find me online for a glimpse into my creative thoughts, painting processes and design inspirations.
