My work reflects my spiritual connection to the natural world expressing my reverence for the sacred in all things. My current research work with bee conservation has influenced my artworks. Bees have become an important metaphor representing the feminine and the fragile state of our eco-system. Living in Africa, where women and the natural world are equally oppressed and disregarded, results in the very fabric of our society undoing. Remove bees from the world and we will cease to exist. These works represent the healing properties found in the sheer beauty of wild spaces.
