Fei is a local printmaking artist graduated from the University of Alberta, where she studied printmaking, oil painting, sculpture and industrial design and developed unique aesthetic insights in artwork. After graduation, she worked in China for one and a half years in printmaking. After two years in Vancouver, she developed her own printmaking career and work at Malaspina printmaking studio

A wonderful insight into how the artists create their work. It would have been difficult for me to strike up the conversations if Fei hadn’t introduced me to them. I’d recommend leaving time after the tour to continue wandering and shopping on Granville Island.

This was a such wonderful experience and Fei was an awesome host. This was my second time visiting Granville Island and I was able to see the island from an artistic perspective rather than just having the public market. Fei is very passionate about the arts, especially printmaking. I'm not familiar with printmaking so it was nice to tour her studio and learning more about this art medium. Fei is also passionate about the local arts community on Granville Island. We visited a few local artists working in various art mediums and toured their studio or store. Every artist we met was very welcoming and I enjoyed learning more about their works. This was a unique experience and I look forward to doing this tour again next time I visit Granville Island 🙂

整体来说很不错,几年前来过Granville Island一次,没有什么头绪,比较走马观花。这次跟着大家一起走,去到了很有特色的店和工作室。见到了好几个艺术家,Marvis她中英文都很好,帮我们跟艺术家交流都没问题的。其实也没想到这是一个充满艺术气息的岛,很喜欢!

Marivs is a frendly host who connect with you and personaliz with my interest . As someone like me who really loves art and crafts it is a very unique trip to visite Granville in a more intimate point of view. We had a chance to visite the studios of some local artists and had a chance to meet them in-person. I would never be able to talk to them myslef if I just visit the island as a tourist.
