Contemporary embroideries from gallery pieces to giftware and cards. Fabulous colour and fabrics combine to create beautiful, quality artwork which bring joy and delight.Using machine and hand stitching, Swifty Bell Designs embroideries are available framed, mounted or on canvas to suit both gallery and gift shop settings. Fabric, stitch, and paint are used to produce items of all sizes including the new poppy sculptures. A range of handmade greetings cards, individually stitched, complement the larger pieces.The designs are quirky and incorporate a whimsical take on nature. Bold, vibrant fabrics work together with imprecise embroidery that makes every item unique. Ranges available include poppies, long legged birds, hares, dogs, cats and trees. The stitched, layered, elegant fabric poppies come in limitless colours, long legged birds are sure to delight and the mixed media trees, representing each season, are delicate and stylish.
My latest designs are two new sculptures, a Hare and a Stripy Dog. The fabric hare sculpture is a stitched, two sided leaping hare with a black aluminium stem, the base of the sculpture is thick waxed plywood. The fabric stripy dog sculpture is a double sided stitched sausage dog on a black aluminium stem in a waxed plywood block.
