I visited these countries to tour, purchase art, learn about the culture and contribute to the economy. In Thailand and Myanmar, I learned about the Chin tribe, which some of my art work is based. I met @christianDevelter, a Belgium artist who spent much time in Myanmar learning about the Chin tribe. After speaking with his manager, Peter Smits, and learning much about the tribe and buying one of Christian’s pieces, I traveled to Myanmar to do the same. My trips were magnificent. I met actual tribal members and purchased art from old masters and three up and coming artists— Zay Zay Htut, Myat Co, and Yan Naing Tun. Can’t wait to be back and travelling again!!
