Carol Anderson Bell

Carol is a fiber artist, currently residing in Minnesota, originally from Chicago.  Her artistic progression began with weaving.  Coming from a Swedish ancestry she decided to study at the University of Stockholm her junior year.  She was surrounded and inspired by the rich, vibrant colors of the Scandinavian palette.  While in Sweden she learned to Weave and studied batik.

The "Sconcho" is an innovative fabric art form that Carol has conceptualized and named.  The Sconcho is in the style of a poncho with the asymmetrical draping of a lovely scarf.  She enjoys the search for the perfect texture, color, and drape of the fabric, often re-purposing the cloth.

Carol's Sconchos- designed for casual or formal wear are for sale in boutiques in Minnesota and at Chicago-area art festivals.  Her website www.carolbeldesigns.com shows examples of her one-of-a-kind pieces and upcoming events.
