Carolyn graduated from the Royal College of Art in1982. After a twenty-five year career in London as a fashion designer she moved to North Norfolk in 2003. Carolyn’s background in sculpture, her love of natural form and the close proximity of the beach led her to indulge a childhood interest in shell collecting. Shells with their accidental beauty, subtle colours, variety in shape and texture appealed to her.

After studying an Art Foundation at Falmouth and Printed Textiles at Leeds College of Art Bella began the brand in 2015. First selling prints freelance to fashion houses but soon realised it was bringing a brand of her own to life that she wanted to do long term.
