The Embassy of Belize also wishes to promote art and cultural exchange between Taiwan and Belize through this event so that people in Taiwan can further understand Belizean culture and custom.

Rachael Nadine Heusner
Rachael Nadine Heusner has held art exhibitions in Belize, Trinidad and Tobago, Honduras, Mexico, Barbados, Anquila, Suriname and the United States. Her works have been collected by buyers and artists from all over the world. The inspiration of her works often comes from her experience in Belize where she grew up. She uses different media and interesting natural elements, such as coffee, turmeric and chocolate, to capture the beauty of common people and the Caribbean.

His paintings are also part of Belize’s national collection. Two of them are exhibited in Belize National Museum. He is especially fond of drawing portraits of common people.
