Memories of a Bee is a series of cut and pasted gouaches made over the last few years, my first solo show since we all became temporary hermits. The slow pace, daily walks, and lots of pottering in the garden fed the work - watching bees choose their irresistible flowers; watching myself choose irresistible scraps of painted paper; moments of timelessness; memories of childhood’s timelessness and of specific times; memories of a wordless conversation with a bee; and moments of the utter pleasure of watching a bee clamber deep into a flower and struggle out again.
