About this Event

Our Inspiration

Inspired by the iForest Foundation and our passion for uniting communities, Angela and I aim to create a legacy reminiscent of the iconic duo, Gertrude and Alice. Our journey began unexpectedly through Airbnb, blossoming into a successful partnership and countless unforgettable dinner parties. We believe in fostering connections and empowering the underprivileged, making this event a beacon of unity and creativity.

We are privileged to have invited influential artists, painters, and musicians to showcase their talent to Vancouver's discerning audience.

  • Short Introduction:

Hi! I'm Lilly. I'm an artist and an interior designer.
While experimenting with different mediums and styles, I continue to find my own unique 'signature'.I mostly use acrylic and charcoal to create abstract and expressionist paintings.Growing up in a non-artistic family, I've always been a curious kid with a big imagination.Painting is like another world to me the moment I hold the brush.Complexity in simplicity, movements of emotions, thoughts and energy; these are things that inspired me.
"Your marks are uniquely yours" --- Karen Yurkovich
Thank you to one of my art instructors. My heart has always been rooted in this sentence.
