Pearl Yip is, in her own words, “Hong Kong born, Richmond raised, Vancouver grown.” She holds a BSc in Agroecology from UBC and an MLA from the University of Manitoba.
Pearl is enamoured by the opportunities for chance, fleeting encounters offered by landscapes. She relishes the fact that such ephemeral experiences may leave the most lasting memories, and can personally attest to this capacity. A childhood camping trip revealed soothing natural wonders that starkly contrasted the bold urbanity of Hong Kong: glistening dew drops, bird calls piercing the fresh air, and a moon that was bigger and brighter than anything she has seen since.
A casual foodie and photographer, in her spare time Pearl continues to pursue inspiring sensory experiences around Vancouver and beyond.
"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
