My Photo:

My object is a post card of the painting Untitled (From Savory) by Irene Hoffar Reid. Hoffar Reid was one of the first students to graduate from the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts (Now Emily Carr University of Art + Design) and continued to be an active member of the BC Arts community all of her life. I wrote my Master’s thesis on Hoffar Reid and this work is my favourite!

What I Do:

I work to promote an interest in the rich history of North Vancouver and the work that the North Vancouver Museum and Archives do within this community.

What I Bring:

A long-held enthusiasm for local history and lots of experience working with social media to communicate this enthusiasm. I started volunteering at my local museum when I was 15 and my love for museums is the foundation of all my work.

What I Enjoy About North Vancouver:

North Van was the first place I lived in when I moved to Canada seven years ago and it felt like home from the start. I love the mix of city and nature, and how multicultural the community is.
