Why I Buy Local Art Everywhere I Travel

I’m sure you’ve started to see a trend when it comes to my travels. I collect local art from every new place I visit. I figure I’ll one day be able to create a gallery of adventures.

This Is Travel

The first picture you see is probably the one most people have seen from my 2019/2020 trip to Iceland. Stunning landscape, my bright green hair, and witchy attire. But that photo doesn’t represent my best memories of that trip. It doesn’t give you the real picture of what that trip was like.
