About Bella Blue Earth
Welcome to Bella Blue Earth!
We are based in Maple Falls, Washington in the foothills of Mount Baker surrounded by the rivers where salmon spawn and bald eagles come for the winter, where farms and barns seem to have personalities all their own, the flowers, birds and wildlife burst into inspiration here in our studio, bringing to life my illustrations, greeting cards and art prints.
As we all face a new way of life and a new ways of living I began to feel drawn to collaborating and supporting other artists, makers and small business owners by offering their arts and crafts here at Bella Blue Earth along with mine. I spend a lot of time the computer as a digital illustrator and graphic designer and can offer artistans another alternative route to selling their crafts. Small businesses and artists are working harder than ever and by supporting others we all benefit. You'll see new, unique items being added all the time as we work with small shops around the country to bring you some really special items to both beautify your life and make it a little more eco in the process.
Bella Blue Earth offers an easy way to "shop small business", to find unique gifts and one of a kind items from the comfort of your home. For many, shopping has become difficult this year and yet we all need to find that special gift for our loved one or just something new to sparkle up a room that suddenly you find yourself spending much more time in than ever before. With the pandemic, new challenges have arisen but we also have the gift of time and space and maybe even some deeper and more fulfilling evenings home with game nights or jigsaw puzzles. I'm digging in deep to find some really handy home products too.
I hope you also find these independent artisans as inspiring as we do here at Bella Blue Earth. I'm excited to see what we will be adding next!
I'm currently working on brand new illustrations and art for a series of Activity Books and Coloring Books to add to my catalog. You can order The Imagination Room Activity Book, my very first attempt at what I hope will be a long lasting and growing series of fun for all ages. My husband helps run the business in the evenings after he gets off work when he isn't painting or writing poetry.
I am honored that my artwork has been used to support N-SEA, Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association, Whatcom County's local organization helping salmon recovery. My illustrations can also be seen in projects for Harbin Hot Springs, Northern California's beautiful and cherished hot springs retreat center located in Lake County, CA where I continue to work from afar.
