British born and raised…and proud of it! My early career began in the fashion industry. After earning a degree from London College of Fashion, I was snapped up by leading haute couture designer, Jean Muir. I eventually segued from fashion into graphic design at Pentagram – an international multi-disciplinary design firm – where I worked in both their London and San Francisco offices.
After years of travel, marriage and the birth of my son, I moved permanently to the USA and joined a fast-growing corporate management company for the next 10 years. As Director of Marketing, I created and managed all advertising and marketing programs for approximately 80 satellite offices, as well as the corporate office in Sarasota, Florida.
Utilizing many years of experience in both the business and creative fields, I eventually ventured out on my own with Bell Design, an independent business focused on marketing, branding, website design and project management.
Currently living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in Asheville, NC, I enjoy photography and creating mixed media art, which has been displayed in several galleries downtown. In my spare time (ha!) I am also Co-Founder of a non-profit, HADAYA Global, providing toys, books and educational opportunities for displaced children worldwide, mostly within the refugee community.
