About the Artist:
A Visionary Artist born and raised in Hagonoy, Bulacan Philippines. I am a graduate of Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising at Bulacan State University.
After graduating, I worked as a Graphic Artist while painting on the side until I decided to pursue my career as a Full-time Artist in 2016.
Having been in the art industry for 18 years, I have participated in different group shows in the Philippines and abroad, and recently held my 5th solo exhibit.
I use oil as a medium and my theme focuses on nature, humanity, love, oneness, and spirituality. It is expressed primarily by subjects of unskinned human figures combined with landscapes and the use of vibrant colors of chakra.
As an Artist, my mission is to create art that inspires, gives hope and healing, as well as spread peace and love through my art.
