Welcome to Bear Bell Productions!


Hi! I’m Bärbel Dressler - a Swedish pattern designer and creativepreneur. With a nerdy passion for past times and vintage, a strict monthly Copic marker allowance, I'm in pursuit to conquer the world of patterns and illustrations.

I also have this urge to share what I know and love to inspire and help other ink-stained-home-studio-hermits and creative dreamers through my blog and courses.

I live and work in Vega - which sounds like a remote galaxy, but is a small town just south of Stockholm where I live right next to the beautiful lake of Drevviken with my husband, two kids and a bunny who believes he's a dog.

Bear Bell Productions

This is my one-woman business and home base for all kinds of creative ventures. I started Bear Bell Productions in 2015, after a long career in marketing - a background that is perfect when you start up a business. Being an entrepreneur is my passion and blessing, to be able to work from home and live a creative life.

Pattern designer & illustration artist

I create patterns for all kinds of industries and products and right now you can see some of my patterns on printed leather which is then made into clogs and sandals. I also make illustrations to be used for art prints, wall art, greeting cards, websites, magazines, book covers and so on.

Graphic designer

Now and then I also take on projects for graphic design and marketing - from branding concepts with logos and visual identities, marketing assets, ads and merchandise.

Producer & teacher

Another pillar of Bear Bell Productions is teaching. I produce and teach online courses in pattern design, illustration and using professional markers on a global educational platform called Skillshare.

And last but not least I market a selection of printed products like trays, pillow cases, toiletry bags and clogs, all made in Sweden and with my pattern designs.
