Bumble Bees
follow me around like puppies

a profound visit by a bumble bee marked a shift in my life

After we came nose to nose in a crowded parking lot, I discovered an enchanted world inspired by Nature and symbolism, in which flora and fauna are messengers of Nature’s teaching.

Because that Bumble Bee buzzed into my life, I found botanical illustration, and bumbles started following me around like puppies. I also was inspired to create a pollinating garden. It’s a way for me to express reverence towards her—the Bumble bee who change me.

The work I create is guided by Nature to reflect the artistry and intelligence of the natural world.

I am forever bonded to the Bumble Bee.
