Welcome to Turquoise Stag Design
The Shrill Carder Bumblebee Book, Greeting Cards and Limited Edition Prints
DESIGNER AND MULTIMEDIA ILLUSTRATOR
NATURE CONSERVATION WILDLIFE
I am inspired by the natural beauty of wildlife, nature and flora that surrounds me where I live near to Cornwall's rugged North Coast.
I create illustrative art work that uses a mixture of media in order to capture 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 and uses anthropomorphic language to describe the Shrill Carder Bumblebee's characteristics. My book has been influenced by the work of 20th Century children's author Beatrix Potter.
