Queen Bee

Artwork details: gouache, 4 x 6 inches (10 x 15 cm), 2006.

One of the 'Kings and Queens of Old England' series of miniatures.

The Queen Bee was an obvious one as a subject for royalty, but I've made her rather more alien-looking than the others, in keeping with the alien qualities of insects. Also she is pregnant - of course she is pregnant, the queen bee has no purpose other than to make more bees all her life.

Prints & Original Artwork

You can now buy prints of my work (and a few originals) in my Etsy Shop. If you would prefer to buy direct from me, or you cannot find what you are looking for in the shop, feel free to email me instead: mail@nancyfarmer.net. If you are interested in original artwork, I do intend to post a list of currently available artworks in due course, but I'm in the process of moving and re-building a main website, so for the meantime please also email me for more information on originals, and also commissions.
