About us

Welcome!

Bella Blue Earth is nestled in the foothills of Mt. Baker deep in the mossy forest where wild rivers flow, salmon spawn, and bald eagles feast. Jocelyn Suzanne brings nature's inspiration into her illustrations with colorful birds, flowers, plants, rivers and patterns from what she sees around her.

Our business is small - we truly appreciate you shopping with us. Please contact us with any questions. We also offer wholesale!

 We strive to give back to the community and planet by volunteering to help restore salmon habitat with the Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association.

I'm honored that my art has been used to help support N-SEA, Nooksack Salmon Enhancement Association, Whatcom County's local organization helping salmon recovery. My artwork can also be seen in many projects for Harbin Hot Springs, Northern California's cherished hot springs retreat center located in Lake County, CA where I continue to work as a contractor to support the rebuilding efforts after the Valley Fire of 2015. ~ Jocelyn

 

Digital Artwork
In 2010 the two decades working as a production artist had worn out my hands. It took a few years of practice but eventually I found the same technology that wore out my hands also provided me with the amazing tools I needed to create - the pressure sensitive Wacom digital pen and my favorite program, Adobe Illustrator, a vector illustration program I first began using while screen printing at my job in 1996.
The digital pen and "pencil tool" in Illustrator allow me to draw for hours using a very light touch. I hold myself to self imposed standards I use drawing with my digital pencil. I draw the same as I did with an ink pen. I use no "tricks" or shortcuts. I do not "copy and paste". I draw each leaf, every flower, each section of a mandala carefully with each detail to keep the integrity of the natural flow and organic feel that comes from hand drawn art. Although I print them most often on greeting cards as a way to offer the art affordably, many of the designs are quite detailed and are intended to be printed large as wall murals... someday.

Thank you for visiting!
