The Shrill Carder Bumblebee Book, Greeting Cards and Limited Edition Prints
DESIGNER AND MULTIMEDIA ILLUSTRATOR
NATURE CONSERVATION WILDLIFE
The natural beauty of nature that surrounds me living near to Cornwall's rugged North Coast, has inspired my creativity to design illustrative art work that uses a mixture of media. My work captures the essence of nature's natural beauty. My aspiration and overarching desire is to raise awareness of the plight of Bumblebees and to educate about the importance of conserving and preserving their natural habitats.
Therefore, in order to raise awareness of the plight of a very rare Bumblebee called the Shrill Carder, I have written a short children's story that tells the tale of Lizzy, the Queen Shrill Carder Bumblebee and her family's life cycle. The book is called, The Tale of the Shrill Carder Bumblebee Family. The illustrations in my book are naturally inspired using a variety of mixed media. The book creates feelings of empathy for Bumblebees, provoking a protectiveness towards Bumblebees and their natural habitats.
My book has been written as a tool to inform and educate. I use anthropomorphic language to describe the Shrill Carder Bumblebee's characteristics. My book has been influenced by the work of the 20th Century children's book author, Beatrix Potter.
