Bella Blue Designs
& Bella Blue Earth

Welcome! Bella Blue Earth / Bella Blue Designs is based in Maple Falls, Washington in the foothills of Mount 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. 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 exclusively on illustrations celebrating the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, particularly Whatcom County and the beautiful countryside surrounding Bellingham, WA, below Mt Baker.


My husband and I arrived in Washington state in late 2018 after many lovely years in Northern California abruptly ended after a forest fire whipped through our town, spitting us out like little pinecone seeds where we eventually landed fairly softly here in Maple Falls. We were eager to soak up the rain and relaunch Bella Blue Designs with a renewed focus on art and illustration inspired by the natural wonders of the Cascades. We set up BellaBlueEarth as our online shopping site and began offering my artwork for sale on greeting cards, tee shirts and art prints. Please take a look!


I am honored that my art 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 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!
