Hello! Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
I am a visual artist based in the Manila, working mostly with acrylics, oils, and watercolour. A graduate of Fine Arts, I worked in a museum, then in advertising for over a decade. At the start of 2017, I made a few big, exciting changes in my life: I left my job, got married, and opted to pursue painting full time.
My roots go back to Angono, Rizal, known as the Art Capital of the Philippines. Among my relatives are painters, musicians, and dancers, including two National Artists: Carlos “Botong” V. Francisco for Art, and Lucio D. San Pedro for Music, and the country’s first ballet scholar to Juilliard.
Yup, I have big shoes to fill! But for the time being, I’m picking up my paint brushes, getting some canvases dirty, and having a lot of fun along the way.
Oh, and I also have a maddening obsession with art supplies. I may, one day, get around to using all of them.
