Owner & Designer
About Wendy Bell Designs
Wendy Bell, owner and designer of Wendy Bell Designs, founded the award-winning studio in 2011 after her second redundancy. Originally launched as a wedding stationery design service, the company rebranded and relaunched in June 2019 as a greeting card publisher.
With a BA Honors in Printed Textile Design from Winchester School of Art, Wendy has worked in various design positions throughout her career; the most influential roles include working as a Handbag/Accessories Designer and another as a Greeting Card Designer.
After a move from London to Shrewsbury, Wendy decided to take some time to get back in touch with her creativity and set herself the task of experimenting with different painting techniques. In addition to this, she undertook a year long project to photograph the changing seasons in her new, stunning surroundings of Shropshire. She didn’t expect to fall so passionately in love with what she was doing and it became the catalyst for the company relaunch.
Since the relaunch, Wendy Bell Designs has been shortlisted for a Gift Of The Year Award and is now stocked in John Lewis, Blue Diamond Garden Centres, various independents and has a licensing contract in the USA and Canada.
