Thanks to my Irish-Canadian father and Chinese-Canadian mother, I routinely celebrate Christmas with turkey and mashed potatoes, and Chinese New Year with Peking duck. I am proud that my maternal grandparents have deep roots in Chinatown and the Burnaby & New Westminster Chinese communities, and their stories and photos are featured in the history book Yi Fao: Speaking Through Memory. Now, as I spend my time as a guidance counsellor during the day and an artist in the off-hours, I hope my watercolours and words can speak through their memories and mine – inspiring delight, nostalgia, and compassion.
