The world of art is not a world of immortality but of metamorphosis. ~André Malraux

For Kristine, creating this bee collection has been an inspiring journey where she falls more in love with her creations and education process each day. Daily meditations and visualizations inspire clarity of the message and details for each piece she creates.


"It fascinates me how much the bee has been worshiped and admired by cultures and educators for thousands of years. The bee is truly magical."

HOW THE CREATION BEGAN...

In a December 2018 art show in the heart of Soho New York, Kristine featured three pieces: Admiration, Love and Nectar. The theme was "The Next Step", and the artists were asked to provide their perception on environmental, political, and social views. Kristine was excited and clear on her message.
Her concept for the "The Next Step" was inspired by women leading and nurturing our ever-changing world. Together, with the powerful honey bee, they are creating promise for “The Next Step” on Earth.  
Albert Einstein once said, “If the bees disappeared off the face of the earth, man would only have 4 years left to live.” 
Bee symbolism is rich with sensuality, nectar, community, and the Goddess."I believe there’s a huge shift happening with all aspects of our world and I’m certain that women will be the Next Step to these positive transformations. Thankfully, the population of women leaders is rapidly growing  and creating positive change to our universe.” ~Kristine Andrea
Kristine is currently working on the Queen Bee Collection at her Calgary Studio, and she returning to New York this March to feature Mellonia in the Grand Opening of NYA Gallery in Tribeca.
