Artist Statement


Experience a garden that truly buzzes with life! Not only does François Milly’s whimsical art garden have vibrant colours and surreal creations, but it also features unique concrete watering bowls designed to bring bees, butterflies, and birds right up close. Whether you’re in search of eye-catching wonders or just want to ensure your gardens are well pollinated — come on down for a visit at François’ place @ the fernwood church. Plus we’ve got some awesome upcycled driftwood sculptures made from sifted shorelines; the perfect way to add some beach zen into any indoor or outdoor space. Pollinators not included!


Francois Milly is a French-born, West Coast-inspired artist and designer. His unique aesthetic combines an appreciation for the natural world with a playful sense of humour, resulting in one-of-a-kind pieces that add character and charm to any space. François draws inspiration from his travels, as well as from the beauty of his converted 100-year old chapel home in Victoria, BC. When he’s not in his studio creating new works, you can find him tending to his garden sanctuary or spending time with his dog
