Queen Bee was created through my love and appreciation for bees. On October 1, 2016, National Geographic published an article about seven species of Hawaiian yellow-faced bees that are now federally protected. There is growing public and political concern at bee decline across the world. This decline is caused by a combination of stresses - from loss of their habitat and food sources to exposure to pesticides and the effects of climate change.
I decided it was a good opportunity to showcase bees in an anthropomorphic style. To offer art that allows for a conversation of bees beyond being insects that have a tendency to sting. It is my hope that not only will the art be amusing, playful and clever but that an appreciation will develop towards what the bee species offers our daily lives.
Thank you for supporting the artwork. ❤️
