Bees in vivid technicolour – a gift that can start a honey farm and send children to school

By Chrissie Abbott

Melbourne-based mixed-media artist Chrissie Abbott was commissioned to produce the brand new “Bees” card. The result is a beautiful, vividly technicolour piece that Chrissie says is a celebration of bees.

“I gathered images I felt that were engaging, scanned them and made the composition,” she says. “I wanted to make it really joyful, with a positive vibe … bees just coming in and out of the flowers, doing a bee thing.”

Not only will this beautiful bee card bring a smile to your loved one’s face, but you can’t beat the feeling of knowing you’ve helped families in Papua New Guinea to earn a living through providing low-cost equipment and training for a family in beekeeping. Plus, with the money from the honey, the family can buy medicines and send their kids to school.

Chrissie says working with Oxfam was a real pleasure. “It makes a nice change to do something for good.”
