The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams” – Henry David Thoreau.

Rachel is a beekeeper and an artist who has spent several years working closely alongside her own honeybees, appreciating the complexity of their everyday lives, inner workings and perfect architecture.Her pieces are designed to form a small body of work that represents the past, present and future of bees and apiculture as well as give an intimate and close view of the insects as individuals, highlighting their own unique features and ecology. Through doing this she hopes to dispel some of the myths and anxiety surrounding the insects and offer new perceptions with a unique opportunity to gain better understanding to the beautiful and complicated world of honeybees, their life cycles, and their influence on humanity.
