The London International Fine Art Fair (LIFAF) supported Maggie's Centres as their charity of choice and offered a space at the fair for a 'garden' stand.
With the small space and budget the design was simple. Maggie's 'Tree of Hope' was: "A specimen flowering tree that spreads its canopy like a metaphorical umbrella that is a Maggie's Centre: a home-from-home place where visitors can 'shelter' and be offered advice: a refuge for support during the bad days and a blossoming of hope."
The tree is raised on a circular wooden plinth and red steps cut out that lead up to the tree. The riser of each step names those Maggie's Centres open to date.
