I am a Vancouver artist showing my work locally and internationally. I also write fiction and translate academic books and articles. I love to listen to the blues, jazz and world music. My husband and I enjoy the company of a culturally diverse group of friends and excited to open our house to new ones. As my motto, I like to combine the pessimism of the intellect with the optimism of the will, to paraphrase Gramsci.
