In The Lost Tribe, I hope to present the extinction crises of the bees in a memorable and unique fashion by way of an unusual use of materials and techniques. Presenting images of a hive as a woman I hope to evoke emphasy and encourage the viewers to confront these environmental challenges anew.

In Spoonful of Honey, albeit my hours spent in hand-embroidering these bees pale at the hours that the each bee spend in producing a spoonful of honey, I hope that their beauty, framed in each hoop/cell stirs the viewers. The Vanishing Bees installation visually explores the collapse of bee colonies. Each drawer of slides documents the increasing cases of lost bee hives reported since 2005.
