Mary-Kate is drawn to understanding and growing in her Catholic faith through reading about and meditating on the lives of the Saints. She finds the dedication of Saints to particular causes, and the devotions to them, of particular interest. These paintings are simply studies of Saints who have a connection to animals - specifically bees - Saints Ambrose & Gobnait.
