Bumble-Bees Art and Crafts sells original artwork, prints, embroideries and other merchandise by wildlife artist, Betty Busby, of 'Auntie Betty Illustration'.
I am fascinated by New Zealand's unique wildlife and loves the beautiful, rich colours of native creatures and plants.
I am passionate about creating wildlife artwork of endangered and rare species from around the world, especially lesser known species which need more publicity.
New artworks are constantly being created for Bumble-Bees Art and Crafts, but I am also available for wildlife art commissions. I specialise in watercolour, coloured pencil and embroidered portraits. You can contact me here: Contact
I tutor people with learning disabilities, and also teach adults and children cognitive drawing, watercolour painting and embroidery classes. I aim to write a monthly blog about my illustration journey.
I am proud member of of Arts Canterbury and the New Zealand art collaboration, doodlewear. Most of mys ethically-manufactured and 100% natural, biodegradable and sustainable cotton clothing range is produced in collaboration with doodlewear.
I also sells some of my work on print-on-demand platforms:
I share work-in-progress photos and stories on Facebook and Instagram.
