FIBER ARTS
Bobbie Pell


 

Celtic Colours, magical fiber arts creations, are luxurious hand-made garments for women. High quality yarns (Peruvian Highland Wool, Suri Alpaca, Merino Wool, Brushed Kid Mohair, Silk, Rayon Boucle) blended with hand-dyed colors create mosaic fabrics. Garments are one size fits all. Each style series is based on designs and traditions of the early Celts while color combinations mirror the Celtic affinity with nature. Be sure to follow color detail links for individual skeins!

Touch the sensual delights of simple beauty and elegance!

 


 

 

DREAM HATS

This series creates a dreamy fabric both dense yet soft by blending Peruvian Wool and Alpaca.

Feather light, these hats add class to a winter outfit, compatible with black, camel, hunter green, and navy.

Silk Painting, Biltmore Tulips


LUMINOUS SILK IMPRESSIONS

These paintings offer a look into the majestic beauty of nature through the lens of intriguing shapes, compositional designs, and vivid, translucent colors.  Macro floral images reveal hidden wonders in even the smallest of wild flowers where bold lines and vast arrays of color blend to create sweet harmonies.  Landscapes play with shapes of contrasting areas of shadows and light.

Monochromatic mountain scenes move in distinct ridges down each piece in bold hues of analogous colors.  Healing images, unique to the artist, share heart knowledge gained through her journey of overcoming traumas, opening viewers to deeper inspirations. 

The process of painting on silks using transparent silk dyes offers the artist surprises within the plan as color moves across the fabric. Both the original silk pieces finished as quilted wall hangings and printed silk centerpiece images printed on acid-free, cold-pressed archival papers are available.

To view my full silk painting portfolio, please visit my shop “ImaginaryCeltic” (one word) on the ETSY website, or click this convenient magic portal to ImaginaryCeltic!

PRINTED IMAGES:  Images printed on acid-free, cold-pressed archival papers are available.  Floral and Landscape prints image sizes are 11 x 14 ($45.00).  Monochromatic Mountain range image sizes are 8 x 10 ($30.00).  Prints come with 3" mat, backing, and clear seal package.
