Shell Rummel

Designer, Artist, Visual Storyteller

The sea can do craziness, it can do smooth, it can lie down like silk breathing or toss havoc shoreward; it can give gifts or withhold all; it can rise, ebb, froth like an incoming frenzy of fountains, or it can sweet-talk entirely. As I can too, and so, no doubt, can you, and you.”

Shell Rummel, Artist & Designer
The inherent movement of nature really intrigues me and often provides the details that are at the forefront of my art and design work. Noticing this natural process is what feels real and raw and beautiful to me.
I strive to honor these elements
in all I create.”
— Shell

Most days  you can find me,  casual and comfortable, wearing worn in blue jeans and bare feet, working away on new collections or a new watercolor painting. My design studio is warm and light...a feel good space to create and run my design business, my pup Baci curled up at my feet. 

I am drawn to organic lines, authentic materials, layers that reveal and patterns that make the eye dance.  My work is a direct reflection of what catches my eye; the gentle curve of a line, textures you can feel with fingertips, subtle shadows from the play of light. My collections pay homage to all that resonates deeply with me. 

My company, Shell Artistree, has been an established presence in the fine art, wedding and stationery markets for nearly 20 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 exhibitions and national publications. An honor,  that my artwork has been collected by thousands of private and corporate art patrons both within the US and abroad. 

My current passion centers around building the Shell Rummel brand which features my signature tranquil designs and elegant color palettes. You can find Shell Rummel products (bedding, bath, rugs, pillows, textiles, fabric by the yard, house paint and of course, wall art) online and on the shelves of a growing list of major retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Kohl's, Wayfair and JoAnns fabrics.
