Never take caterpillars at face value
—I learned this from nature
(among other lessons)
Hello, I’m Stephey
a botanical artist & instructor
follow me around like puppies
a profound visit by a bumble bee marked a shift in my life
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.
