THE SOULROOTS MOSS ART TEAM
ANN MARIE LEWIS - CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Ann Marie, alongside her two daughters call the north shore of Vancouver home and with deepest respect acknowledge the land is the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, Squamish, Tseil-Waututh and Musqueam nations.
Soulroots was conceived unwittingly during Ann Marie's own journey of healing inherited trauma. Connecting with nature and creative expression were critical to her own growth and healing. Her passion for the outdoors, deep respect for nature and background in floristry naturally drew her to biophilic design. She is inspired to share the beauty of the forest, bringing its healing and calming energies indoors through her unique moss art creations.
An integral part of her vision in creating Soulroots moss art was to be able to support and give back to organizations committed to protecting our natural resources, educating our children and supporting the healing of trauma survivors.
"I wanted to pay special reverence to our indigenous community who's roots are so deeply aligned with living in harmony with nature and and who's people suffered unspeakable atrocities which will impact generations to come if we don't take action in supporting the healing of the survivors and future generations"
A portion of every sale will be donated to AMCS and Charitree.
