Bee and the Sea

Sadie Cordell Designer, illustrator and surface pattern designer

Sadie Cordell is a designer, illustrator and surface pattern designer from Cleethorpes, UK. She completed a degree in BA(Hons) Design from University Centre Grimsby in 2019.

Sadie creates black and white, pointillism and line drawing illustrations heavily influenced by nature, animals, the local area, and the things that she loves.

An avid lover of merging traditional drawing practises with digital, Sadie turns these hand drawn illustrations into bold repetitive surface pattern designs, which are then printed onto products to be sold alongside prints, originals and commissions. These products consist of tote bags, mugs, coasters, pocket mirrors, stickers, badges, cards, wrapping paper, cushion covers and more. You can find these products under her brand ‘Bee and the Sea’ and can be purchased online or in local shops.

Sadie usually takes commissions in the form of traditional or digital animal portraits, building illustrations, and logo designs and branding.
