This amazing insect is in danger. Bees pollinate our plants which grow our food. Please do your best for our environment. A portion from the sale of this sculpture will go to the West Kootenay Beekeepers.

Born and raised in the Okanagan, Lisa studied welding at Okanagan University, also taking instruction from master blacksmith Joe Delisimunovic in Vernon. Realizing she discovered her true passion, she started her business, MetalicArt, and in 2015 relocated to a small acreage outside of Castlegar where she and her husband raise two children. Lisa finds inspiration from nature; the beautiful curves in plants and the unique details of animals.

Fashioned from mild steel, The Plight of the Bee beautifully depicts the endangered insect, so vital to our ecosystem. A portion of the sculpture sale will support the West Kootenay Beekeepers.
