Art for Life

The inspiration for Lilybart is a precocious, highly- spirited and beautiful bundle of energy.

Lily was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis just before her first birthday. She is now 18. CF is an inherited disease which affects every organ in the body. Lungs and digestion are the hardest hit. Lily battles the effects of this insidious disease every day. Each day is a fight for breath and life.

Lillian Bartholomew Royer is fondly referred to as ‘Lilybart’ by her great-grandmother and is the name of our endeavor to raise awareness of Cystic Fibrosis and to provide access to integrative medicine.

Lilybart is the vehicle from which artists and children can collaborate. From this art, greeting cards are made and sold throughout the Aspen Valley and online.


Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. ~Thomas Merton

Lilybart provides a synergistic and empowering platform from which Lily can experience hope, initiative and community. Through art, collaboration and wellness, Lily receives affirmation that transcending beyond what medicine dictates is curative and powerful.
