When you look more closely at your environment you can’t miss the bees. These little things are an everyday event but they do such an important job in the world and as apart of our ecosystem. 

Each of these embroideries explores the beauty and importance of the bumblebee. Stitched in the summer of 2015 – 2016 for the “Made of Snow” exhibition held at the Franklin Arts Centre

Physically these pieces show a realistic bumblebee, they are hand stitched using embroidery on cotton fabric.
