About Jocelyn's Artwork:
My name is Jocelyn Suzanne Hoey and nature's inspirations bring life to my illustrations, greeting cards and art prints. I've been a graphic designer and digital illustrator for over 25 years and am excited to be focusing on illustrations celebrating the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, particularly Whatcom County and the countryside surrounding Bellingham.
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 inspired by the natural wonders of the Cascades.
I am delighted and amazed by the plants and birds that are new to me since moving to Washington. The ever changing weather, the forest, the rivers and the salmon were calling to me and I began learning about the ecology of the area. Scenes like the swans in the muddy farm fields during winter and woodpeckers at my window have brought me so much joy. I hope you also find the joy in my artwork celebrating the beauty of earth.
