After 30 years, living and working outside the steady hustle of the city of Washington DC, a spontaneous leap of faith brought Shell Rummel, along with my portable art and design studio, to reside part time near the Gulf of Mexico. My days now unfold at a much different pace. I often walk along the beach collecting seashells and studying the rhythmic ebb and flow of the water. Here, I am continuously reminded of the gifts that come from time and tide. This collection of fabrics was directly inspired by observations and reflections as I embarked on a new journey, embracing this unique moment of my life. It features my signature softly sophisticated and organic hand painted designs, including a stunning watercolor panel print that pays homage to the colors and energy of this beautiful place I now call home. I can’t wait to see how Time & Tide inspires your creativity.
