Caroline Bell www.carolinebelltextiles.wordpress.com
Caroline is a textile artist who is currently exploring the use of natural dyes and more specifically the mark making potential of the eco print. This process involves the transference of plant imagery and patterning onto cloth and paper, harnessing the substances contained within the plants to provide print and colour. Once this has been achieved works are created through further surface treatment with substances such as oil and wax and then stitched mainly by hand.
Inspiration is drawn from the natural world particularly the immediate locality, time and the passing of the seasons.
Caroline is based in the south of England and was one of two Embroiderers Guild Scholars 2014-2015
