The Interconnectedness of All Things

I am the Lead Artist and Curator of the ongoing collaborative creative project called ‘FIFTY BEES: The Interconnectedness of All Things’.

It was initiated it in 2017 and conceived as a way to use art to concentrate attention on the status of the British bee population - how endangered it is.

Each year, I create fifty small individual bee art pieces.  I then invite another fifty artists, makers, writers, musicians to produce one new companion work in response to the ecology of one of those bees. 

The FIFTY BEES presentation creates a unique narrative between works and artists.

It makes explicit how pollinators are completely interlinked with our ecosystem.
