Artist's Bio

Born and raised in Vancouver, BC ("Yay CANADA!"), Vera grew up being involved in children's musicals and high school plays which probably helped her overcome shyness. After a couple of years in college denying any talent or future possibilities in Theatre, Vera finally gave in to auditioning to the Simon Fraser University Theatre Program where she committed 5 gruelings years learning actor and the Theatre. During those years, she was the Drama Director for Fraserlands Community Church that was built as a 500-seat theatre house. Upon graduating with a BFA in Theatre, she landed her first professional theatre performance at Pacific Theatre as "Bea" in A View From the Brigde in which the cast was entirely Asian-Canadian. Vera then moved to Seattle where she spent a number of years acting and directing. The shows included OPM, Welcome to the Wongs, West Side Story, Gold Watch, Passion, and Rancho Grande ("Ugh"). Vera also has had a one-woman show that she hopes to expand from it's 30 minute existence to a full-length play. The show is called Fading Into the Landscape where Vera uses her own identity to explore the different issues and faces of identity; FITL has thankfully been performed at many different venues in both Vancouver and Seattle. Vera's teaching experiences and residencies have been at NWAAT, Seattle Repertory Theatre, Taproot Theatre, and currently Bellevue Community College.
