Originally from Texas, Tylene received her BA in Architectural Studies and History of Art from Brown University and her MA in the History of Decorative Arts & Design from Parsons School of Design. In 2006, she relocated from New York City to Shanghai, China to establish ArtToursChina, which provides guided art tours and art consulting services to those looking for insight into an always evolving and sometimes baffling contemporary Chinese art scene. When Tylene is not out on one of her walking tours, weaving in and out of moped traffic and avoiding other occupational hazards, she spends her time learning Mandarin, documenting daily life in China’s largest city, and doing her part to make China a greener place to live, one reusable chopstick at a time.
