Deborah Williams Bell is a native of the Carolinas and longtime resident of Charlotte. From an early age, she exhibited a great talent for the creative arts and crafts. At the tender age of 16, she turned heads by winning an audition to dance with Broadway singer and pianist, Jimmy Durante.
After a successful run as a professional singer dancer and model with the William Morrison Agency in New York, Deborah returned to North Carolina to attend Western Carolina University and Southwestern Technical Institute. With a keen interest in law, she earned an Associate of Science in Paralegal Technology ranking second in her class of fifty. Her legal career spanned almost a decade focusing on real estate, personal injury and criminal law at some of the most prestigious law firms in Charlotte and Asheville.
Not long after, her strong yearning for all things creative beckoned Deborah back to the things she truly loved. She balanced a modeling and TV commercial career with running a floral shop. Her tenacity and talent lead her to develop long term relationships with area businesses and country clubs for custom, large-scale events. Her client base expanded to the music industry in Nashville, where she designed custom weddings, parties and fashion. One of her dress designs was purchased by singer/songwriter, Kelly Pickler and featured in Nashville Lifestyles.
Today, Deborah’s passion and skills have driven her artful reflections into hundreds of grand openings, weddings, parties and seasonal retail décor across the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, New York and Europe. She has graced the cover of Charlotte Weddings and been featured in Charlotte Woman and Hilton Head Monthly.
Luxury-focused businesses, most notably – Hendrick Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, Hampton Inn & Suites at Southpark – have depended on Deborah Bell & Company for well over a decade for visionary transformations and excellence in client servicing. Deborah’s biggest sense of accomplishment is being able to work on any scale project, from an intimate residential celebration to a national convention or political event with pure joy, grace and panache.
