I'm an illustrator, painter, and designer based in Hamilton, Ohio. I have a lifelong love of making things with my hands, and nothing gets me more excited than creating beauty in any medium - be it paint, ink, pencil, or the written word.
In my fourth and final year studying graphic design, I decided to start my own little business and call it Bella Bee Made, after the nickname my parents gave me as a toddler– "Busy Bee." At Bella Bee Made, I illustrate, create fine art, and work in graphic design. When it comes to creativity, it is my goal to make all things lovely. It's those lovely, beautiful, and pleasant things that I believe truly mark a joy-filled life, and it is always my aim to be contributing to that joy.
"Whatsoever things are lovely...think on these things."
