I am a Filipino full-time visual artist currently based in Angeles City, Philippines. I work as concept artist at a Dutch design company and full time artist
I learned to do drawings since I could remember. My parents once told me, that before I learned to talk and walk, I already know to do doodles on the walls of our old house in my hometown in Mindoro.My early exposure in formal art training began in 1997 when I become a scholar at Philippine High School for the Arts, Mt. Makiling, Los Baños, Laguna. It is an art school for selected talented young people in different fields of art from all over the country. Unfortunately, I made it only two years to study due to an ill health which resulted in my poor school performance. But failures didn’t stop me following my love for art.
I graduated from my first college degree in Fine Arts at Technological University of the Philippines, Manila. Right now, I am a second degree undergraduate sculpture from University of the Philippines, Diliman, Quezon City. I know it was fun going back schooling but I find it more adventurous to learn outside my comfort zone. We are all students of life, we have to survive creatively.
All of my works have evolved through the years of constant failures and succeeding. I love taking risks and experimenting different mediums and techniques such as working with fabric, collage, drawings, paintings, and my new found freedom, three-dimensional art such as bas relief. I like working in minimal, experimental, and eclectic with few colors on a wide, quiet white space of my canvas. I don’t do plans, like drawing the subject first hand, but I just let my mind work directly on my artwork. I take inspirations from life’s reflections, my advocacies for healing our environment and myself as a woman. My life experiences taught me well about the universe, to be confident and fearless and to believe in the magic of my hands' creations
