Project Baby Bird by Athena Bax
Shortly after being introduced to the BC Women’s Hospital Newborn ICU (“NICU”) Campaign at the fashion fundraiser event, SPARKLE, in 2013, Vancouver born and raised Artist, Athena Bax, took a private tour of the NICU facility and immediately felt a natural connection between the cause, the amazing babies, and the “Beautiful Journey” series she created and has been painting for the past decade.
“For me it’s simple, my art is here to serve. It carries with it an energy of pure love from my heart and soul. My hope is that this energy can create something greater when it leaves my easel.”
The theme of the “Beautiful Journey” series represents the extraordinary strength that a tiny yet mighty creation of life enters this world with. Perched on their willowy branches, silhouetted, the little birds sit in the light of a vast, moody, cerulean hued sky, preparing to fearlessly fly to wonderful unknown journeys that lay ahead of them with the determination to live free and sing the song they were born to sing.
When you purchase a ‘Project Baby Bird’ original painting, 50% of the proceeds go directly to helping babies cared for at BC Women’s Newborn ICU.
