You are invited to help protect a wood
by purchasing original artwork
Welcome to my gallery!
I named it GALLERY FOR THE TREES because that’s exactly what it is: a place where you can buy original artwork to protect a native woodland and invite a little nature into your home.
How does it work?
The gallery is filled with drawings I made inspired by the wood, the trees, and the landscape around me (I live in a beautiful corner of the universe known as Normandy, France.) When you buy a drawing, you buy an original unique work signed and dated on the back.
The money received for the drawing will finance the purchase and protection of 2 ha of woodland. Nestled between many empty fields, this 100-year-old woodland is a haven for many animals and home to several water sources. When you buy your artwork, you will help us to extend this little forest and keep it safe for many years to come.
The target is 22.600 euro, that is the price for the land including the notary fee.
To keep things simple and avoid making additional costs I do not provide frames or passe-partouts with the drawings. The drawings vary in size but are all within the A4 measurements (21 x 29,7cm) and fit through a standard letterbox. I use a free google site and not a paid web-hosting or official webshop with built in payment system. I’m not looking for an anonymous production system, that doesn’t feel right to me. I’ve designed my online gallery so we can make direct contact. We can connect via phone, email or you can pop by to look through the catalogue and see the beautiful woodland for yourself.
Thank you for supporting this initiative, I’m grateful I can share the trees with you in this way. ♡ Sylvia

In September 2021 we found ourselves in the position to buy 2 ha of woodland and field that is directly next to our home.
