Feel the deep-rooted connection between trees and their ecosystems through this series of quilted wall hangings, inspired by Dr. Suzanne Simard’s research at UBC.
Born and raised in rural Southwestern Ontario, Lorraine Roy developed an early appreciation for the land and its natural beauty. Her introduction to the fabric arts at her mother’s knee began a lifelong passion for textile art. Using raw edge fabric appliqué and machine embroidery, she builds images that bridge science and spirituality with the surprising versatility of fabrics and threads.

About the Museum
The Beaty Biodiversity Museum is Vancouver's natural history museum, dedicated to building greater understanding, and a shared sense of community and wonder, around biodiversity.
The Museum brings together UBC's six research collections of more than two million specimens under one roof and puts them on public view for the first time. This includes Canada's largest blue whale skeleton, suspended in the Djavad Mowafaghian Atrium, the third-largest fish collection in the nation, and the world's largest collection of BC plants.
