Hi! I’m a Sussex based print designer & Illustrator. I love screen printing and am inspired by pretty much everything! Be it the South Downs (where we live), the coast, colour or pattern. I always have a camera (mostly an iPhone nowadays!) or notebook to hand to document these moments of inspiration. I’m super keen on being an eco-friendly maker and spend a lot of time sourcing the right fabrics, inks and papers. I hope you find something you like! Debbie x

The story behind the business
Meet Bella and Phoenix

I’ve worked as a Graphic Designer for many years on lots of well known home brands - I absolutely love my job but also wanted to make after falling in love with screen printing (also the perfect excuse to get covered in ink, which did happen a lot when I first started!)

I’m very much at the beginning of my journey as a maker and with having a young family it seemed only fitting to start with them and Bella + Phoenix was born… an eco-friendly brand that is aimed at children. I started with the ‘Tee of Knowledge’ which is not just a t-shirt but for kids to learn more about the natural world in a fun and organic way. Since then I have launched some fun sew-your-own kits, that can be made into toys or cushions, think cloth kits from the 1970's! I'll be adding more lines over the months, for adults and the home - so please come back and visit!
