WELCOME

At Two Bees Design Studio, I create each card with the purpose of bringing joy, beauty, and often laughter into the life of a friend.

All of my work begins on French Arches watercolor paper and evolves into a pigment-ink (giclée) print on fine Museo card stock, all produced here in my studio. Customers often note my love of color and simplicity, and combining the two into a card is what informs both this business and my life.

Receiving a lovely and original handwritten note still carries an unrivaled pleasure that transcends our internet-driven society.

My five note card collections include flowers, vegetables, beautiful French windows, humorous commentary about reading, life, and wine, along with an assortment of holiday, birthday and bereavement cards.

About Two Bees and Owner Sally McBee

I have lived in France part of the year for the past 23 years and use that time to think, create and paint. Hiking is a big part of my life, and I've done extensive hikes in the past few years in the Canadian Rockies, Sedona, Morocco, Bulgaria, the Everest Base Camp Trail in Nepal, National Parks, the Grand Canyon, and Denali in Alaska. These experiences feed into my painting habit, and I've drawn many of my cards from photos I've taken while traveling through these exciting places.


Being creative in one form or another has always been in my blood, and although I didn't start painting until 2006, I think art for me is a natural extension of my previous experiences. What do I love most about the design process? I never know what a finished card or product will look like when I start ... and that keeps the process fun and engaging for me.

Obviously, it's not all seriousness: I believe humor is essential to our well-being, and I am always on the lookout for ideas to make people, including me, laugh!
