About the founder

My name is Vera J. Bellamy, and this site represents a personal creative space and a cultural project to entertain, enrich and inspire!

It is a tribute to my love and appreciation for words and aesthetics, and my life-long passion for French language and culture. My articles and photos follow my interests in French lifestyle and culture, and they are about people, places and events that enrich global culture through the French art de vivre.

I am also a linguist and a French Instructor. I hold a BA and a MA in French Lit from UC Berkeley. I specialize in localizing products for the francophone world, and consult for various IT companies and translation agencies.
