Then fill out the form with some words of wisdom you would like to share.

Voice recording


For a moment…..

That you are a tree, a beautiful, magnificent tree with deep roots and soaring branches.

You live in a forest surrounded by other trees, birds, animals and lush plants.

On the inside, you are layered from a strong core unto your bark. Each year passing by you have grown a layer and became taller, wider and stronger.

If we could see inside that tree, we would be able to tell what those years have been like.

Now, we are inviting you to see those layers, this core, and to listen to them.

What do they have to say? What words of wisdom do they have to share?

Maybe you would you like to tell them something? What do you want to share with your inner tree?

Now write those words, this sentence on the paper we gave you and be ready to share it on the final artwork. You can write in English or any other languages.

Thank you.

Help us spread the word, share with your friends!

The tree is now full, thank you to all our participants. If you want to be updated on our upcoming participative Arts project, please fill out the form here.

Participate in a collective work of Art with Sophie Babeanu (Expressive Art Facilitator) and Sandrine Pelissier (Professional Mixed Media Artist).

Together we will create a meaningful and beautiful cross section of a tree representation, made of concentric lines of your words of wisdom.

You will experience a fun, imaginary time travel and have the opportunity to share a few thoughts  on our collaborative work of Art titled : Time Lines

Every participant will be entered in a draw and run the chance to win this unique piece of Art.

After the event, we will also sell prints with all proceeds going to our local food bank.
Please bring a non perishable food item to support them.

It’s done!
Delicate Abundance
Acrylic, watercolor, gouache and India Ink on canvas

This is a school of salmon fry. I was working on this painting just as we got an freighter oil spill here in Vancouver in beautiful English Bay. This is just a reminder that what seems abundant in nature is actually threatened.

And here is a short video of the making of this painting.

In Hong Kong will be displayed at the FCA for the Foliage and Flowers show, April 7 – 19, 2015
