Dr.Khin May Kyi
Not many people in Myanmar would swap a stethoscope for a brush. But Daw Khin May Kyi did just that, happily leaving behind a much-respected and well-paid career in the medical profession to become a full-time artist.
“If I had been close to the art sphere, I would have become an artist much earlier- in my youth. Only pencils and paintbrushes can give me pleasure now; I let go of the stethoscope. I served as a doctor for more than 40 years, and I loved that profession too,” said the doctor-turned-artist.
