Hello, I'm Cate B.
When I am not passing myself off as bee royalty, I go by the name of Cate Burton. My path to Queen B took me via law, banking and marketing strategy... all of which created the need for a creative and relaxing hobby! The impetus for Queen B began two decades ago when I began to have severe anxiety attacks. I discovered a few calming hobbies in the ensuing years (ranging from ceramics to carpentry)... and one of those hobbies - hand rolling pure beeswax candles - was the seed that formed Queen B. Almost 20 years and over two million hand made, pure Australian beeswax candles later, I think of what we do as sending light into the world. I am the national judge for beeswax and beeswax candles and an acknowledged world leader in all things bee created light.
