Vancity Fair: Bif Naked State of Mind

Posted: Updated:

Vancity Fair is an interview project that asks compelling Vancouverites to complete The Proust Questionnaire to expose their thoughts, values and life experiences.

Miss Bif Naked is many things: an international recording artist, cancer survivor, advocate, activist, straight edge, vegan, hugger and trouble maker.

While writing new music, creating art and mastering a personal makeup style that could bring Kabuki to its knees, Bif has been working on her Book of Memoirs and recently released the record Bif Naked Forever: Acoustic and Other Delights.
