Honey is a sweet treat, but if you haven't heard honey bees are in crisis, which makes this a bittersweet situation! Honey bees pollinate about 80% of the crops that humans depend on for a third of our diet. the value of the bee-pollinated crops in the US is about $15 BILION annually, nearly 100 times the value of all the honey produced. If that doesn't get your attention then check out more from our own White House and the current National Strategy for Pollinators
As an artist and a gardener I have decided to take action through the use of the language of art. My passion is oil painting. Recently inspired by the book The Bees by Laline Paull I decided to create a blank note card based on a painting I did of the maine character Flora. I am pledging to donate 100% of my profits from these cards to support honey bee and sustainable pollination research. My Flora note cards will be available for purchase directly through me at shows that I attend. To find out where my next shows will be click the Events and Contests page here on my website. They are also available through my website storefront, click here to view Flora Note Cards
