Micheline Bell

Fibre artist
Member Since: 
2001

Fiber Art is my passion. I draw my inspirations from the essence of the natural world. Elements of nature, landscapes of colours, texture and shapes are translated into designs and are reconstructed onto natural fibers as a celebration to the wonderful spiritual world of nature.

I have chosen and am committed to work with natural dyes. Natural dyes have remarkable tinctorial properties and the extensive palette of hues released by these dyes are naturally in harmony with the human eye.

The processes involved are more extensive than synthetic dyes but I strongly believe in the global maintenance of our planet and therefore in contributing to the protection of the environment, our health and safety. Natural dyes have been used traditionally throughout the history of textiles.

The ancient art of natural dyeing is present in my creations.
