About Bella Blue Earth

Artist photo holding framed printBella Blue Designs online shop "Bella Blue Earth" is based in Maple Falls, Washington in the foothills of Mt. Baker surrounded by rivers where salmon spawn and bald eagles come spend the winter, where farms and barns seem to have personalities all their own, and flowers, birds and wildlife burst into inspiration here in our art studio.

We are honored that Bella Blue Designs art has been used to support N-SEA, Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association, Whatcom County's local organization helping salmon recovery. Jocelyn's illustrations can also be seen in many projects for Harbin Hot Springs, Northern California's cherished hot springs retreat center located in Lake County, CA.

Thank you for visiting and supporting our small business!

About Jocelyn's Artwork:

Hi! My name is Jocelyn Suzanne and nature's inspirations bring life to my illustrations celebrating the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. I’m enthralled with the shapes, colors and patterns of the natural world. I’m inspired and motivated to document the wonderland of the beauty surrounding me through my art even as I witness devastating losses to the environment. My art stays focused on beauty and is intended to be a reminder to cherish Earth and recognize the urgent need for responsibility and care of the planet.

 

My husband and I arrived in Washington state in late 2018 after many lovely years in Northern California abruptly ended when a forest fire whipped through our town, spitting us out like little pinecone seeds where we eventually landed fairly softly in Maple Falls. Eager to soak up the rain, we relaunched our small design business Bella Blue Designs with a renewed focus on art and illustration and collaborative creative writing.

I am fascinated by the beautiful plants and birds of Whatcom County. The ever changing and often exciting weather, the lush forest, pristine rivers and salmon and eagles were calling loudly to me as I began learning about the ecology of the area. Swans in the muddy winter farm fields, woodpeckers outside our windows, local bird watching spots and the ever present cycles of the seasons continuously inspire my desire to create. I hope you also find the joy in my artwork celebrating the beauty of earth.
