Yan at Abuna Yemata Guh church in north Ethiopia

Yan is from Hong Kong. She was a banker previously based in London and Nairobi. Along the way, she has been hopping around over 20 countries. Inspired by entrepreneurial Kenyans, she decided to take a sabbatical year from mid -2016 to pursue art and explore possibilities of career. Then she decided to start her own venture in 2018. Ultimately, she wants to build a sustainable and forward-looking business which combines her love for art and adventures as well as less privileged communities in East Africa.

With Art Around !, she is now fully committed to organizing tours in Asia and East Africa for like-minded travelers. Each experience is unique and carefully designed with the intention of letting freedom, creativity and exploration guide the journey.

Yan also paints so she is a maker too.

Meet Yan and join the next Tour!
